The University and Arlington Clubs Meet, 1868

From the October 24, 1868 Nashville Union and American:

“Base Ball. A match game for the championship was played yesterday between the Arlington and University clubs, resulting as follows: Arlington 33, University 16.”

“University” probably referred to the University of Nashville, which no longer exists in the same form. This match was the first in a series of three for the championship of Davidson County. The University Club would eventually win the final two games and the championship.
