Dr. Margaret "Peggy" Gripshover was kind enough to share with me some of her research on baseball in Knoxville.  Peggy is now on the faculty of Western Kentucky University.  These articles are all from 1888. I assume that they are from the Knoxville Journal newspaper.

UPDATE - I verified the dates and the paper in June of 2013.
