History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

"This town has always managed to run a team cheaper than any other in the land. It was so in '82 and the same is true to-day. Cincinnati's champions of '82 were a good club for that time - a rattling good club - but Louisville could have wiped it out by spending a few dollars to keep Pfeffer here." - Tony Mullane, musing in 1889 about the '82 Eclipse
