The St. Paul (Minn.) Club was elected a member of the Union Association yesterday, and will fill the dates the Wilmington Club would have filled if it had not disbanded.-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, September 25, 1884
It was the end of September and there were something like fourteen or fifteen games left in the season. What was the point, exactly, of adding the St. Paul club to the UA? They ended up playing all of nine games and went 2-6, with a tie. Ridiculous.
Somebody please explain to me again why the UA is considered a major league.
