More Railroad Discounts for Championship Matches

The Tennessee Base Ball Championship for 1868 was a best of three series, with the Nashville Club having defeated the Holstons in game one.

“Tennessee Base Ball Championship.

The Nashville Base Ball Club will leave the city this afternoon for Knoxville, where they will play the second game of three with the Holston Club of that place, Thursday, for the championship of the state. If the Nashville Club proves successful, the contest will be decided in their favor. An exciting game is anticipated. The Nashville boys will be accompanied by a large number of friends, for whose benefit the railroad will issue tickets at half rates.”

From the Nashville Republican Banner (1837-1875) 22 Sep 1868, page 4.
