The Perfectos

I found a team photo of the 1899 St. Louis National League Baseball Club over at The Deadball Era (and if I haven't mentioned it, The Deadball Era is a fantastic site that you should really check out). Pat's Perfectos finished 84-67, good for fifth place and the first winning record for the franchise since 1891. One of these days I'm going to write up a post on all the machinations that went on in 1899-the change in ownership, the Cleveland/St. Louis player shuttle, the great start the team got off to, and all that. But not today.
