1921 throwback game
The game was part of a double-header which concluded with a standard match-up later in the afternoon. The throwback game began at 2:00 PM with teams wearing old-style uniforms and playing by the rules of the game as they were in 1872. The teams were styled as the "Elyton Warriors" and the "Cahaba Invincibles", and the game ended in a draw.
- It is possible that the teams were named for Confederate infrantry units. A unit called the "Jefferson Warriors" was organized at Mount Pinson in July 1861 and the "Shelby Invincibles" were organized in Harpersville on August 19, 1861.
