Knoxville's 1870 pop. was about 8,500.


The City Club was mentioned in an newspaper account from 1875 (Press and Messenger Wednesday, Jun 30, 1875 Knoxville, TN Page: 4), having been challenged by the Wild Rovers of Clinton. But they rejected the challenge on account of it being summer.

Win/Loss Records As Far As We Now Know

Warning: Users should not rely on a team's won-loss record as a reflection of its "standing" among all base ball clubs. Team schedules were not balanced, and a good record against mostly weak opponents does not signify a leading club.
