Nick Name Copec
Earliest Known Date Thursday, October 4, 1866
Location Covington, KY, United States
Description

"Base ball is decidedly on the rampage. We have to chronicle another victory for the Covington boys. There is a junior club in our sister city that 'travels' under the cognomen of Copec. The name is a mystery to most people, but to satisfy this curiosity we will say that the name was taken from a fast race hourse that ran on the Buckeye Course. As Copec is the name of the fast horse, so it is the name of a fast Base Ball Club.

The Copec Base Ball Club was organized on the 4th. day of October, 1866, and has never been beaten but once, and then they were 'waxed' by the Queen City Club, of Cincinnati, last year some time, the date we do not remember."

Covington KY lies across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. It was the 56th largest US city in 1860, with a population of about 16,500.
