University Championship Match and “What’s in a Name, Trix?”

From the Nashville Republican Banner, May 30, 1868, page 4.

“Base Ball

The University of Nashville and Lindsley Avenue Clubs played a match game yesterday for the University championship and a prize bat, resulting in the success of the former by a score of 56 to 49.

The Trix of North Nashville and the Trix of South Nashville played yesterday for the name and a prize bat, in which the former was victorious by a score of 15 to 11. So the South Nashville Club will have to select another name.”

I’m not absolutely sure what the “University championship” referred to, or which university the Lindsley Avenue Club was associated with. But as the University of Nashville bordered Lindsley Avenue, it’s quite possible both teams were made up of its students.

Also, there’s no word yet on the new name for the South Nashville Trix.
