Location Nashville, TN, United States
Nine Class Junior, Senior

"The Morgan and Forrest Clubs, juvenile, played a match game for the championship of Davidson County yesterday. The Forrest won, scoring forty-one to twenty-six by the Morgan."


"A match game for the championship of Tennessee was played yesterday afternoon at the Fair Grounds between the Memphis Mutuals and the Morgan Base Ball Club of Nashville, commencing at 3 o’clock. A considerable crowd of ladies and gentleman were present to witness the struggle. We desired to give our readers a full amount of this interesting match, but cannot do so for lack of knowledge of this highly important branch of the fine arts. Thus situated we shall have to be content with a brief announcement of the result. In the nine innings played, the Mutuals scored 28 to the Morgans 24, thus easily winding [sic] the championship of the State. The Morgans have been sometime out of practice, but hardly expected to be so egregiously beaten. The Memphis boys were as active as cats, and developed more accuracy than the occasion required. They wore their new won honors with an entirely becoming grace."

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.
