The Anheuser-Busch Nine

The Anheuser-Busch nine were defeated by the Consolidated Express nine yesterday morning, at the Union Grounds, the score standing 28 to 7.
-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, July 7, 1884

This is a nice, little reference to an A-B baseball club from 1884.  Adolphus Busch was one of the original investors in the Maroons and was probably the largest investor in the club besides Henry Lucas.  And that's why the club was playing at the Union Grounds in July of 1884.
