By The Way...

St. Louis Globe-Democrat, September 10, 1884

I just did some math and it appears that the Maroons clinched the championship of the Union Association on September 9 with a 11-3 victory over Wilmington.  At that point, they were up twenty-five games with twenty four to play.  This was the first professional championship ever won by a St. Louis baseball club.
