The 1884 Browns finished fourth in the AA with a record of 67-40. They were a young team on the verge of a great championship run. Most of the pieces were already in place and they had a bright future.
But take a look at those uniforms. While they look pretty good and are rather stylish, try to imagine wearing those dark uniforms in late July and early August in the heat and humidity of a St. Louis summer. No air-conditioned clubhouse. No fans in the dugout. No refrigerated Gatorade. Nothing but playing a game of baseball during the hottest part of the day while wearing all black uniforms.
You have to feel sorry for them.
