In The Good Old Days

Adam Alfrey gave a talk today at the East Tennessee Historical Society.  Adam is the Operations Manager and Curator, East Tennessee History Center, Knox County Public Library.   He spoke on Base Ball in Knoxville in 1867.  He had some wonderful supporting articles from local papers.  I need to ask him for his notes so I can clarify some things in my mind.  I learned a lot today.

Here's an article from 1895 that looks back on the early days of ball.
