Greetings from the Library of Congress. It's closed on Monday, so I thought I'd check for a "Windy City" and baseball items in the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. I'd found an ENQUIRER "Windy City" citation, reprinted in the NATIONAL POLICE GAZETTE, from October 1883.
17 June 1883, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, pg. 4, col. 2:
WHILE the failure of McGeoch in Chicago yesterday created something of a pnaic in the Windy City by the lake and other speculative villages, all was serene in Cincinnati.

BASE BALL BY ELECTRIC LIGHT.
SPECIAL DISPATCH TO THE ENQUIRER.
FORT WAYNE, IND., June 1--THis evening the second test of playing base-ball by electric light was made on the local grounds in the presence of quite a number of persons, and proved quite a success.
27 May 1883, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, pg. 10, col. 3:
THIS is the way a New York paper roasts an association umpire: "What on earth makes Kelly wear a mask while umpiring? It would be impossible to spoil that mug of his, even if his breath did fail to change the course of the ball, which is hardly probable."
25 May 1883, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, pg. 5, col. 5:
