Dickson has 1914.  Barry found 1906.

Decatur Semi-Weekly Herald, July 18, 1902.  Page 3, column 2:

    <<With "Smiling Pete" to back up Dorner and McGill and "Lucky Bill" as a
relief pitcher the club will at least be in beter shape to face the strong
nines at Rockford, Cedar Rapids, and Davenport.>>
