Description

"Base Ball-- This healthful and exciting exercise was very generally popular this fall, especially in the Northern States, and we hope it will be introduced here as soon as the heated term passes off. We noticed the other evening a party engaged in Base Ball on the Edgefield side of the river, all apparently enjoying themselves. The early closing of the stores gives a fine opportunity to the young men engaged in mercantile pursuits...Let us have Base Ball Clubs organized, then, and the fun commenced."

Edgefield is a residential area of Nashville on the east side of the Cumberland River.
