1886 Baseball Season Roster
- The Browns win a “World Series”
- With new rules, walks and strikeouts soar
- Matt Kilroy’s 513 strikeouts
Stolen bases became an official stat and seven players (three in the National League, four in the American Association) were credited with at least 50. The NL reduced the requirement for a walk to seven balls. The AA went further, reducing it to six – and saw walks double. Pitchers benefited, however, from a rule permitting them to lift one foot before throwing. With running starts, the hard throwers had huge strikeout totals – in the AA, Baltimore’s Matt Kilroy had 513 and Louisville’s Toad Ramsey had 499. AA champion St. Louis won the post-season “World Series” with the NL champion Chicago White Stockings.
