My Favorite Name for a Baseball Team Ever


From The Louisville Courier-Journal, June 13, 1887


The Spalding Blues, a colored base-ball club of Louisville, and the “God Almighty Knows” Club, of this city, also of color, played a noisy game of base ball on the commons near West Seventh street yesterday afternoon, in the presence of an immense crowd of spectators, who took more interest in the game than either of the competing clubs. The umpire’s position was one of considerable peril, but he managed to come out unscathed so far as bodily injury went, although his sensitive spirit must have been pained at the criticisms launched at his peculiar ideas on the proper conducting of the national game. The Louisville gang cleaned out the New Albany club, the score standing 17 to 13.
