“Base Ball–Prospective Organization of a No. 1 Club–The Cumberland Base Ball Club, which held the champion bat of the State, has been dissolved, and there are now no more than a dozen of its members in the city. The bat is to be returned to Mr John Luck, to be again contested for by the various clubs throughout the Sate. A movement is now on foot for the organization of a new club, to be composed of picked men from the clubs of the city, and some spirited contests for the possession of the bat may be looked for.

The first match game of the season was played on Saturday by the Rock City and Stonewall clubs. The game was called at the eighth inning, and resulted in a victory for the Stonewall of 43-28. Time, 2:50. The Rock City had only seven men engaged.”

I don't know if the Stonewall Club made up the difference in the Rock City lineup, or if they were actually playing the field with seven players.
