Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1885 St. Louis Browns season was the team's 4th season in St. Louis, Missouri and the 4th season in the American Association. The Browns went 79-33 during the season, best in the American Association, and won their first AA pennant. In the World Series, the Browns played the National League champion Chicago White Stockings. The series ended in dispute with each club winning 3 games with 1 tie. Manager Charlie Comiskey finally was able to assemble and direct a team from start to finish the way he wanted. The result: a runaway championship. The team was built on daring baserunning, clutch hitting, and the best pitching in the league. The team as a whole led the league in both earned run average and overall runs allowed by a healthy margin over second-best Louisville. Individually, Dave Foutz was outstanding, as he won 33 of the 46 games he started and ranked fifth in ERA. His teammate Bob Caruthers was even better, compiling league-leading totals in wins (40), ERA (2.07) and winning percentage.show more
