The Holston Base Ball Club Victorious, 1867 “Champions of the State”

From Brownlow’s The Knoxville Whig, September 25, 1867:

“The Holston Base Ball Club Victorious.– The third of the match games between the Mountain City Club of Chattanooga, and the Holston Club of Knoxville, was played at Athens on Saturday last, in which the Holston were the victors, and is now the champion of the State. Three cheers and a “tiger” for the Holston.”

If you’ll recall, the Mountain City Club won its title not on the field of play, but as the consequence of a vote at the May, 1867 Tennessee state conference in Chattanooga.
