Re-live baseball’s formative professional years.
In the National Associations’ third season, the Boston Red Stockings won their second straight championship with a 43-16 record. The Philadelphia White Stockings were only four games behind at 36-17, but Boston’s squad rich in future Hall of Famers showed their dominance. Pitcher Al Spalding (41-14, 2.99) and batters Deacon White (.392, 77 RBI, 19 SB), George Wright (.387) and Jim O’Rourke (.350, 21 doubles) were destined for Cooperstown. And they weren’t even the team’s top hitter. That would be Ross Barnes (.431, 125 runs, 60 RBI). Pro-rated over 162 games, Barnes would have scored 338 runs on 373 hits, 84 of them doubles and 30 of them triple, with 162 RBI and 116 SB!
Elsewhere in the league, the White Stockings’ pitcher George Zettlein was 36-15, 2.86. The Chicago Athletics’ Cap Anson hit .398 and the Baltimore Canaries’ Candy Cummings was 28-14, 2.80, completing all 42 of his starts. Five Canaries hit .332 to .380.
