First MLB team? or first National League team ( before MLB )


The first NL teams formed in 1876 were the Chicago White Stockings, the St. Louis Brown Stockings, the Hartford Dark Blues, the Boston Red Caps, the Louisville Grays, the New York Mutuals, the Philadelphia Athletics, and the Cincinnati Reds (not the same as the modern Reds, who began play in 1882 as the Red Stockings and joined the National League in 1890). Of these teams, only the White Stockings (now the Chicago Cubs) and the Red Caps (now the Atlanta Braves) have survived to the present day.

I tried that, but when the first page was full of things like, "First Major League Baseball team"-to fly on a regular basis, or Minnesota's, Seattle's, or South Florida's (just to name a few) "first Major League Baseball team", I tried coming here.

And yes, first Major League Baseball team.

I'd have to go with the Cinci Red Stockings (1869) that went on to become the Boston Braves which eventually became the Atlanta Braves.

In the beginning you had a bunch of amateur clubs. You couldn't pay the players (although it happened). Eventually the National Association of Base Ball Players divided it up into paying and non-paying teams.

It was almost extinct then the National Association of Professional Base Ball Clubs took over with the teams you see above.

My 401K is now a 400K (was 301K)
