"There will be a match game between the Nashville and Stonewall Base Ball Clubs, at two o'clock, to-day, at the terminus of the South Nashville Street Railroad. The prize being a beautiful Rosewood Bat, and the championship of Davidson County. The Bat being presented by Mr. Luck, the well-known variety dealer, on Church street. This promises to be one of the most interesting games of the season."

It's possible that the "Nashville Club" mentioned in the 1866 article was the same as the Cumberland Club. 1867 reports indicate that when the Cumberland Club disbanded, the "beautiful Rosewood Bat" had been won by the Cumberlands the previous year and was returned to Mr. Luck. Also, the street railroad terminus grounds were, as of August 1866, the grounds of the Cumberland Club.

With this in mind, post-1867 references to the "Nashville Club" are possibly of a different club, although it has not been confirmed.

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.
