In a quick search I found these references: (But, not to Billy actually playing Diablo himself).

Billy the Kid and his outlaw gang hid in the ruins of a stone house and corral on the west rim of Canyon Diablo.

From Outlaw to Beautiful Ballet: ‘Billy the Kid’
Next month, as part of its 20th anniversary celebration, Diablo Ballet will present, for the first time, the Sweetheart Pas de Deux from this very popular, and according to the Artistic Executor of the Loring Estate, Patrice Whiteside, Loring’s best ballet. Whiteside should know. As a former dancer who has performed Billy the Kid many times herself, she has staged this ballet for many companies, including ABT, the Joffrey Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and companies in Dallas, Oakland, Louisville, Hartford and Pittsburg. And now she’s staging the Pas de Deux for Diablo Ballet.

Apparently he was a Croquet player:

Yes, the croquet picture was the closest I came to Billy enjoying some free time skill development.  I am sure he played cards and would spin them around the table on occasion, but I could not find any spinning diabolo activity.  What Larry D. found about Canyon Diablo and the Diablo Ballet may be some of what you heard, Ketzaltlipoka
