"The Bruner and Stacey Bass [sic] Ball Clubs will pay [sic] a match this afternoon at the grounds of the Stacey Club, below the trestle work."


"Match Game." Daily Union and American [Nashville, TN] 6 Oct., 1866: 3. Web, Chronicling America. 6 July, 2014.


I do not know exactly which "trestle work" this notice refers to. Contemporary sources refer to trestle work over what is now 4th and 5th Ave. (approaching the Cumberland River), as well as Charlotte Ave. If the Staceys indeed played near 5th Ave., their grounds might well have been located within Sulphur Spring Bottom, a popular location for base ball and other activities.
