    You might find something here. They have a section on early Washington State Baseball:

      The first professional game in Tacoma was on May 3, 1890. The league (The Pacific Northwest League of Professional Baseball Players) was formed about a month earlier and included teams from Seattle, Portland and Spokane Falls. Seattle defeated Tacoma 7-6. The ballpark was located at 11th and L in what is known as the Hilltop area of present day Tacoma.

      I have a newspaper article from the May 3, 1990 Morning News Tribune written by J Michael Kenyon that gives the details about the game.
