"Base Ball. The "University" and "Lone Star" played for the junior championship of the county yesterday afternoon, the game resulting in favor of the former--the score being 31-27."

The Nashville Union and Dispatch, April 18, 1868, says that on April 17th the Lone Star of Edgefield (today's East Nashville) beat the Arlington of South Nashville 61 to 28.

By 1873 the "Edgefield Base Ball Club" was proclaimed the "champion club of the county." Nashville Union and American, July 31, 1873.

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.
