Tennessee Teams at the NABBP 10th Annual Convention, 1866

The 10th Annual Convention of the National Association of Base Ball Players, held in December, 1866, attracted 202 clubs from 17 states and the District of Columbia. Tennessee was the state farthest south, with two clubs “represented.” Nevertheless, neither of these clubs (the Lightfoot and Lookout, both from Chattanooga) was able to send a delegate. See Peverelly’s Book of American Pastimes for more details about the convention.
