Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In baseball the 1884 World Series was an early forerunner of the modern post-season championship series. Although the "Fall Classic" as we know it didn't begin until 1903, Major League Baseball had several versions of a post-season championship series before that. The first such championship series was in 1884, between the Providence Grays of the National League and the New York Metropolitans of the American Association at the Polo Grounds in New York City. In 1884, Metropolitans manager Jim Mutrie issued a challenge to his NL counterpart, Frank Bancroft of the Grays. Mutrie's challenge was for a best-of-three series. Each team would put up a thousand dollars with the winner taking the booty.show more
