A journey through the history of baseball.

After reading 2 different dynasties yesterday on OOTP about baseball beginning in 1871, I have decided to take my own crack at it. The first year (1871) will mirror the real lifes as all players will be put on their initial teams. For the proceeding years, (1872, 1873, etc etc) all the rookies will go their original teams they started their careers with.

I will be following the league changes as they happened in real life and using the real life schedules (ie 1871, Boston plays 30 games and Fort Wayne played 19 games.) As for the stats, I will try to have them mirror as closely as I can.

Free agency will be 1 year because back then alot of players jumped teams each year. Abitration is off, injuries are very low and fatigue is low.

I hope this will help you (the reader) and me learn more about the some of the great players of this era.

Next up, I'll post a little about each team.

Top 5 players in the National Association.

1. Ross Barnes: The 20 year old native of Michigan looks to be one of the top players in the newly formed National Association. He makes excellent contact with the ball, has power to drive to the ball to the gaps and has above average speed on the bases.



2. Jimmy Wood: Excellent contact and a good gap hitter.


3. Adrian "Cap" Anson: This rowdy 19 year old from Marshalltown, Iowa comes to the National Association in hopes of being able to continue his competitiveness. But, in the past 3 years, his behavior has been the question as he's spent the last 3 years at various boarding schools for behavior. No one doubts that Adrian Anson, can play ball at the utmost level.


4. George Wright: This 24 year old speedster from Yonkers, New York is the younger brother of Harry Wright, who coincidently is playing for the Red Stockings also. Back in 1868, Wright played SS for the first fully professional baseball known as the Cincinnati Red Stockings.


5. Levi Meyerle: A tall lanky 6 foot 1 inch player that hails from the rough city of Philadelphia, Levi is a pure hitter and also is blessed with great speed. Oddly enough, Levi is playing for his hometown team, the Philadelphia Athletics.

1871 Wrapup and 1872 Team by Team Preview

With three teams having left the Association in Fort Wayne, Rockford, and Chicago. Chicago has departed because of a devastating fire which has destroyed their stadium. Fort Wayne and Rockford have left because of financial troubles. In their place, the National Association will welcome 5 new teams. They will be the Atlantics of Brooklyn, the Mansfields of Middletown, the Eckfords of Brooklyn, the Nationals of Washington, and the Canaries of Baltimore.

Baltimore Canaries: A new entry team that will struggle to compete with the elites of the Association. They did grab young pitcher Bobby Mathews along with Dick Higham and Denny Mack.

C: Dick Higham (.281, 22 RBI with NY Mutuals last yr)
1B: Denny Mack (.320, 18 RBI with Rockford last yr)
2B: Tom Carey (.235, 8 RBI with Fort Wayne last yr)
3B: Bob Ferguson (3-11 with NY Mutuals last yr)
SS: Ed Duffy (.315, 18 RBI with Chicago last yr)
LF: Harry Berthrong (.243, 5 RBI with Olympics last yr)
CF: Joe McDermott (5-14, 5 RBI with Fort Wayne last yr)
RF: Pete Donnelly (6-24, 2 RBI with Fort Wayne last yr)

SP: Bobby Mathews (6W-13L, 2.39 ERA)

Boston Red Stockings: They not only kept the core nucleus of last years championship winning team but also add National Association MVP Jimmy Wood to an already stacked lineup. With Wood's arrival in Boston, Ross Barnes will shift to SS meaning George Wright will have to play at 1B, a position he has very limited experience at in his career. Also, they sign a excellent backup catcher in Doug Allison from the Olympics of Washington.

C: Cal McVey (.358, 20 RBI, 15 SB)
1B: George Wright (.242, 14 RBI, 15 SB)
2B: Jimmy Wood (.386, 18 RBI, 16 SB with Chicago last yr)
3B: John Radcliff (.289, 22 RBI with Philadelphia last yr)
SS: Ross Barnes (.375/.418/.493, 19 RBI)
LF: Frank Barrows (0-2 last yr)
CF: Harry Wright (.375, 1 HR & 19 RBI, 13 SB)
RF: George Heubel (.245, 14 RBI with Philadelphia last yr)

SP: Al Spalding (22W-9L, 3.29 ERA)

Brooklyn Atlantics: Another new entry to the Association will struggle mightily to compete. Basically, this team is a bunch of rookies.

C: Denny Clare (rookie)
1B: Charlie Gould (.193, 12 RBI with Boston last yr)
2B: Jim Hall (rookie)
3B: Jack Burdock (rookie)
SS: Tom Barlow (rookie)
LF: Al Thake (rookie)
CF: Jack Remsen (rookie)
RF: Herb Worth (rookie)

SP: Jim Britt (rookie) At 16, Can he handle the challenge of facing big time hitters?

Brooklyn Eckfords: Basically, this team has limited experience in baseball.

C: Joe Bestick (rookie)
1B: Bill Allison (rookie)
2B: John Hatfield (.287, 14 RBI with Mutuals last yr)
3B: Jim Clinton (rookie)
SS: Jim Snyder (rookie)
LF: Count Gedney (rookie)
CF: Candy Nelson (rookie)
RF: Dick Hunt (rookie)

SP: Martin Malone (rookie)

Cleveland Forest City: Whoa, maybe this is finally a team that can actually compete with that juggernaut known as Boston. They add Lip Pike who spent last season with Troy and LF Ned Cuthbert from the Athletics. They already have Ezra Sutton who can swing the bat with the best of them.

C: Dave Birdsall (.277, 11 RBI with Boston last yr)
1B: Everett Mills (.258, 21 RBI with Olympics last yr)
2B: Lip Pike (.339/.352/.500, 17 RBI with Troy last yr)
3B: Ezra Sutton (.272, 26 RBI, .690 OPS)
SS: John McMullin (.202, 6 RBI with Troy last yr, was a pitcher whole yr)
LF: Ned Cuthbert (2-16, 4 RBI with Athletics last yr)
CF: Joe Battin (didnt appear in a game last yr with CLE)
RF: Gat Stires (.254, 9 RBI with Rockford last yr)

SP: Al Pratt (17W-12L, 2.49 ERA)

Middletown Mansfields: If you thought the Eckford club were BAD, look at the Mansfields team.

C: John Clapp (rookie)
1B: Jim O'Rourke (rookie)
2B: Eddie Booth (rookie)
3B: George Fields (rookie)
SS: Ham Allen (rookie)
LF: Jim Tipper (rookie)
CF: Frank McCarton (rookie)
RF: Frank Buttery (rookie)

SP: Cy Bentley (rookie)

New York Mutuals: With newcomer Candy Cummings joining the team, Rynie Wolters will be tested for his job as the starting pitcher. This team just doesn't have enough pieces to make a push this year.

C: Fergy Malone (.313, 11 RBI with Athletics last yr)
1B: Nat Hicks (rookie)
2B: Bob Addy (.246, 15 RBI with Rockford last yr)
3B: Frank Selman (.241, 15 RBI with Fort Wayne last yr)
SS: Bill Craver (.310, 12 RBI with Troy last yr)
LF: Art Allison (.351, 17 RBI with Cleveland last yr)
CF: Dave Eggler (.285, 21 RBI with Mutuals last yr)
RF: Bill Boyd (rookie)

SP: Candy Cummings (rookie)
SP: Rynie Wolters (16W-17L, 2.81 ERA)

Philadelphia Athletics: If your looking for a team to push Boston for the National Association crown, this Athletics club of Philadelphia could quite possibly do just that.

C: Bill Lennon (.221, 8 RBI with Fort Wayne last yr)
1B: Clipper Flynn (.286, 26 RBI with Troy last yr)
2B: Wes Fisler (.346, 19 RBI, .510 SLG)
3B: Levi Meyerle (.357, 18 RBI, .460 SLG)
SS: Jimmy Hallinan (.206, 3 RBI with Fort Wayne last yr)
LF: George Bechtel (.355, 15 RBI, 6 SB)
CF: Count Sensenderfer (.325, 8 RBI)
RF: John Glenn (.275, 23 RBI with Olympics last yr)

SP: Dick McBride (10W-17L, 2.51 ERA)

Troy Haymakers: Big spenders in the offseason were the Haymakers of Troy.

C: Scott Hastings (.270, 29 RBI for Rockford last yr)
1B:Cap Anson (.345, 14 RBI for Rockford last yr)
2B: Fred Waterman (.323, 12 RBI for Olympics last yr)
3B: Steve Bellan (.365, 25 RBI)
SS: Francis Abercrombie (1-2 last yr)
LF: Steve King (.350, 17 RBI)
CF: Fred Treacey (.339, 30 RBI for Chicago last yr)
RF: Harry Schafer (.238, 13 RBI for Boston last yr)

Washington Olympics: A couple holdovers are still with the club, but basically these are all new players.

C: Deacon White (.211, 13 RBI with Cleveland last yr)
1B: Bub McAtee (.192, 16 RBI with Chicago last yr)
2B: Tommy Beals (.212, 10 RBI)
3B: Henry Burroughs (6-22, 4 RBI)
SS: Andy Leonard (.369, 23 RBI, 9 SB)
LF: Al Barker (0-3 last yr)
CF: George Hall (.305, 24 RBI)
RF: Joe Simmons (.267, 5 RBI for Chicago last yr)

SP: Asa Brainard (15W-11L, 3.24 ERA)
SP: Bill Stearns (2W-2L, 3.40 ERA)

Washington Nationals:A few good players but no enough talent to threaten any team.

C: Charlie Mills (.313, 19 RBI for Mutuals last yr)
1B: Joe Start (.331, 23 RBI for Mutuals last yr)
2B: Al Reach (.329, 13 RBI for Athletics last yr)
3B: Gene Kimball (.303, 12 RBI for Cleveland last yr)
SS: Davy Force (12-29, 12 RBI for Olympics last yr)
LF: Charlie Pabor (.371, 16 RBI for Cleveland last yr)
CF: Tom York (.248, 17 RBI for Troy last yr)
RF: Bill Yeatman (rookie)

SP: Seem Studley (rookie)

Final 1872 Standings

Team……………………................W-L.............GB
Boston Red Stockings……..............33-14…..........----
*Troy Haymakers……...................16-8…….........5.5
*Cleveland Forest City……............12-11............9.0
Philadelphia Athletics...................24-21…….......8.0

New York Mutuals……….................25-31….........12.5
*Middletown Mansfields................2-22..............19.5

*FOLDED


For the second straight year, the club from Boston captures the National Association Crown. From the start of the year, it was clear the Red Stockings were the club to beat as they flew out of the gate with a 20-4 record to start off the year. Behind MVP Ross Barnes tremendous hitting and the superb pitching of Al Spalding, Boston easily sailed to its second straight championship.

1872 Batting Leaders

For both leaderboards (batting&pitching), the reason some guys don't have a team is because I deleted those teams and they went to free agency before I took a pic of the leaderboard.

Thanks. As for the players, I just release them all off the team that folds and just kinda let any team that wants to sign them. I really don't know how they did it back then when teams folded. I think what happened was one team just raided that team for their good players, so it really wasn't that fair in real life.

I have read a few cases of teams going out on western road trips and the team running out of money and the team not being able to get back home
The players would play for a local team for a few weeks for train fare back home

Baseball has come a long way from the day of shoe string teams poorly ran and not having enough money to go out on a 'western' road trip to chicago or cincinnati
