Early Team Photo - Boston Base Ball Association known as the Boston Red Stockings



Established on January 20, 1871, the Boston Red Stockings was one of the eight original members of the National League. The team was orgnized as the Boston Base Ball Club with $15,000 in common stock at $100 a share.

They won six of the first eight pennants and in 1875 they won twenty-six games in a row along with every single home game at the Union Baseball Grounds in South Boston. In 1883, in order to tie their identity to Boston and to avoid confusion with the Cincinnati Reds of the American League, the Red Stockings change their name to the Beaneaters. By 1912 the Boston began to be called the Braves.
