Coca Cola Stars

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.
