I came across a reference to the Coca Cola Stars of Knoxville last night. The three articles were all from 1910. I have not yet had a chance to look at the local papers, only the ones on GenealogyBank. Since they were mentioned in The Freeman of Indianapolis I'm making an assumption that they were a black team. I'm wondering if their name was derived from a sponsorship with the soda company or if it refers to the color of their skin. Hopefully I can find some answers.
