Browns as World Series Champs

Fan Club member, Jim Keddy, writes:  "I have just read a Bio of  Billy Sunday. He played for the Chicago White Stockings in 1886 against the St. Louis Browns, Champions of the American Association for the World Championship . . . . and the Browns won.


So that being the case , 2016 will mark the 130th Anniversary of the Browns winning the W.S. (as it was in that day). Who said that the Browns were never the Series Champs. Look it up, or check it out. Let it be known.

In 1886, the St. Louis Browns won the American Association championship with a record of 93–46, while the Chicago White Stockings won the National League championship with a record of 90–34. The two teams agreed to meet each other in a best-of-seven pre-modern-era World Series, with the winner taking all the prize money. It was the second straight year that the Browns and White Stockings met in the World Series The six games of the series were played on six consecutive days.
