In leading his team to the pennant, Bill Todd took home the manager of the year award. This is only Todd's second year managing, and he was the one that New Orleans fired the year before. I guess that he got the last laugh.


Todd of Shippers Honored, SSL's Best Manager


Club officials have reported seeing Bill Todd at the ballpark as early as 7 am. His dedication, coupled with a shrewd management style and a knack for knowing "who's hot and who's not" earned Todd the Stars and Stripes League Manager of the Year Award for 1890.

"I guess you could say I pushed all the right buttons at the right time for the Shippers to have the season we did. But keep in mind, too, that I also had a group of dedicated ballplayers, who played their hearts out. I thank them for winning this award for me."

There was much joy in Baltimore this season. Their beloved Shippers took first place in the Stars and Stripes League, rounding out the year with a 84-48 record.

Mat Ball was the pitcher of the year for the third time in his career.

Stars and Stripes League Pitcher of the Year Named

The Pitcher of the Year Award for 1890 has been presented and the Stars and Stripes League winner is Mat Ball of Cincinnati.

"It's always nice to receive an award like this," said Ball. "I just hope I can improve on my performance next year and be in the running again," the Abolitionists star told reporters.

Ball excelled with an impressive 28-13 record in 46 starts. In 382 innings he yielded 348 hits and 25 walks, while striking out 197 and compiling a fine 2.26 ERA.

Shane Coleman of the Philadelphia Congress finished second in voting, while Josh Baumann of the Cincinnati Abolitionists finished third.

The MVP went to the triple crown winner.

1890 Premier Player Picked By SSL

The future looks extremely bright for Freddy Perez. At the age of 24, many players are still trying to find their way in Stars and Stripes League.

Perez has not only found his way, he's already established himself as one of the game's brightest stars, today being named the winner of the Stars and Stripes League Most Valuable Player Award.

"I didn't expect to hit .363 this year, that's for sure," the right fielder said.

The Baltimore Shippers star also put up a .427 on-base percentage this year, with 158 hits, 30 doubles, 1 triple, 17 home runs, 88 RBIs and 79 runs scored.

Andy Morgan of the New York Immigrants finished second in voting, while Mike Catanzaro of the New Orleans Rebels finished third.

1891 Season changes

Now that the 1890 season has come to an end, I am going to do more than my customary two small changes to the league. I am finishing my master plan that I began a couple of years ago. Here is the story.

Stars and Stripes League to Expand Separate

New Orleans- The Stars and Stripes League will be expanding by four teams in 1891 and then dividing into two separate leagues. The roots of this move can be found in a bleak chapter of the league's history.

In its early formation, the league of eight American baseball teams formed to unite the country after the war between the states rarely drew crowds larger than a few thousand. In some cities, crowds were more often measured in the hundreds. Baltimore was one such city, and its crowds were so small that the Baltimore franchise decided to move to New Orleans and name itself the Rebels. However, crowds were so small in New Orleans, that they returned back to Baltimore a few years later. The league began to stabilize, but all was not well in New Orleans.

It was during this time that a group of New Orleans civic leaders and business men started to hatch plans to bring big league baseball back to New Orleans. At first they asked the SSL for a chance to bring a team to New Orleans, but they were rebuffed. They then hatched a plan to accuse the league's owners of collusion for banning together to keep other cities from participating, and they began the process of bringing a federal lawsuit agains the league. In order to thwart the lawsuit, the league agreed to allow New Orleans and one other city, Cleveland, to enter the league. Cleveland would provide an even number of cities, which would balance the schedule. The following year, two more teams were added (Buffalo and Pittsburgh) for the purpose of providing a chance at wins for New Orleans and Cleveland, which would hopefully provide stability to the league.

This brings us to our present state of affairs. New Orleans claims that the expansion process that was used forced the new cities to have teams that will not be competitive for a very long time, and that this will create a situation where they will be doomed to terrible attendance and eventual folding. Their claim is that this is de facto collusion to keep them out of the league, and they are again threatening to take the SSL to court if the SSL will not agree to hold one last expansion draft for four new teams, who will then break away with the three newest members of the SSL to create a new league of their own. They are also demanding an end to the SSL draft and for each team of the two leagues to be able to compete for unsigned free agents as equals.

The team owners of the SSL, desperate to avoid a lawsuit, have agreed, but there is a catch. They have offered to allow the new league to exist and and have an expansion draft of their less used players if the new league will agree to a series to follow the season to pit the champions of the two leagues against each other as well as an All-Star game to pit the stars of the two leagues against each other. The final series will be called the World Series, and home field advantage for this best-of-seven-games series will be determined by the league that wins the All-Star game. They claim that this will be a monetary boon for both leagues, but outside speculators believe that the real reason is because they know that they will have much better teams than the new league and will be able to crush the league's credibility in its infancy.

It has not as of yet been announced which cities will be gaining the teams in the new league or what the new league will be called.

The four new cities have been selected. Three have existing minor league teams, and the cities will retain their nickname. Those teams will be the Washington Presidents, Milwaukee Germans, and the Newark Leathers. The fourth team will be the Detroit Electric, which are being named for mayor Hazen Pingree's efforts to create a publicly owned electric-light plant in Detroit. The minor league teams that are leaving the three cities will be replaced.

The new league will henceforth be known as the Great American Baseball League (GABL). Each of the two leagues will submit two owner-representatives to a council to govern the two leagues to ensure baseball tranquility going forward. This council will be known as the American Association of Baseball Clubs (AABC).

The expansions draft has come and gone, and there wasn't one player of note selected. These four teams are really going to struggle. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for a team from the new league to win the World Series.

For the second straight off-season, Chicago is dealing veterans to New Orleans for prospects.

Chicago Ships Bassett to New Orleans
Monday, September 29th, 1890
You can focus on the negatives after being traded to a new team -- finding a new place to stay, leaving teammates and friends, having to start anew -- but one player hopes to focus on the positives. "It means I'm wanted somewhere. At least one team sees potential in me." Those were the comments heard after the Chicago Union came to an agreement to deal 29-year-old C Gary Bassett and $100 in cash to the New Orleans Rebels for 23-year-old LF Greg Robinson, 18-year-old minor league 3B Joe Larsen, 23-year-old minor league LHP Chris Williams, 19-year-old minor league SS Miguel Cervantez and 22-year-old minor league C John Herr earlier today. The deal is expected to be formally announced later this evening.

In his career Bassett has compiled a .300 batting average and collected 993 hits, 22 home runs and 371 RBIs.

New Orleans and Chicago are add it again with yet another trade where New Orleans gets a veteran and Chicago gets prospects. These two have been relentless of the last two years.

Chicago-New Orleans Deal: Wager for Cadle
Wednesday, October 1st, 1890
Chicago and New Orleans made a trade today. In this move, the Union shipped 26-year-old RF Jimmy Wager and a 2nd round draft pick to the Rebels for 19-year-old CF Ryan Chestnut, 18-year-old CF Jon Barcus, 24-year-old CF Dustin Cadle, 20-year-old RF Steve Acree and 23-year-old minor league C Steve Aprea.

New Orleans and Brooklyn have made another trade. It is quite clear that Brooklyn and Chicago want youth, and New Orleans wants veterans. They stand a pretty good chance of being the GABL representative the World Series.

Brooklyn, New Orleans Agree to Swap
Tuesday, November 18th, 1890
BNN has learned the Brooklyn Red Legged Devils have reportedly worked out a deal with the New Orleans Rebels. Sources close to the Red Legged Devils indicated that a trade has been reached in principle where 17-year-old CF John Weiskopf and 20-year-old minor league LHP Jaheim Minkins will be swapped to Brooklyn with 26-year-old RHP Gagik Hayden heading to New Orleans . Neither organization would comment on the report, saying it was club policy not to speak about a trade until it was finalized.

Hayden has appeared in 35 games in his career, tossing 77.2 innings with 32 strikeouts. He has rung up a 3-3 record and a 4.29 ERA and has been credited with 3 saves.

One of the best pitchers in the league has been traded!

Chicago has sent their ace, Mike "Hornet" Kite, " to New York. Chicago continues to rebuild. New York has still never won a pennant.

Chicago, New York Agree to Deal
Tuesday, December 9th, 1890
The Union and Immigrants announced a deal that was completed today. Chicago sent 30-year-old LHP Mike Kite and $310 in cash to New York for 20-year-old minor league C Jake Hulse, 21-year-old minor league RHP Luke Cottle, 20-year-old minor league SS Todd Larkins, 20-year-old minor league RHP Jason Thornton and 23-year-old minor league 3B Kyle Fritz. Both teams appear happy with the outcome of the trade. The general managers told the Baseball News Network they felt the swap was beneficial for the both teams and the players.

Lifetime Kite has registered a 192-162 record with a 3.29 ERA.

Cleveland and Newark have made a minor deal of mediocre veteran players. I'm sure that New Orleans is quaking in their boots.

Beebe and Acosta Dealt
Wednesday, December 17th, 1890
The Cleveland Eries have finalized a deal that will send 32-year-old 1B Caleb Beebe to Newark for 33-year-old LF Javy Acosta. Minor details still need to be worked out before the trade becomes official, but the players involved are expected to be with their new clubs soon.

Beebe is hitting .282 lifetime with 789 hits, 155 doubles, 6 triples, 24 home runs and 323 RBIs to date. He has scored 234 runs and stolen 2 bases.

Hall of Fame Voting Results

I'm disappointed to see that Nate Assel has been dropped from future ballots. He entered the league as a 35 year old in 1871, so he never had a chance to put together much of a career. Despite his advanced age, he managed a 2.68 career ERA with a 1.08 WHIP over the next ten years. If the league had begun in 1851 instead of 1871, he would likely go down as the best pitcher of all-time. Instead, he isn't even going to be in the Hall of Fame.

On the other hand, it is really nice to see Chris Teasley get the credit that he deserves. His 296 career wins make him third all-time, and his 2422 career strikeouts place first. As the ace for the St Louis Survivors, he helped them to win their only two SSL titles in 1874 and 1875, and he won the Pitcher of the Year award in 1875. He was a great one.

Diaz Joins HOF Immortals
Tuesday, January 6th, 1891
A huge crowd watched Antonio Diaz become the newest member of the American Association of Baseball Clubs Hall of Fame today.

"I'm a big believer in whatever you want, if you want something out of this game, you've got to put the work in it. You've got to work hard," said the outstanding second baseman, whose new plaque described him as "an artisan with a bat whose daily pursuit of excellence produced a .292 lifetime batting average, 510 hits and 69 home runs."

After the induction ceremony Diaz was asked what was the most thrilling moment in his career. He responded quickly, "No doubt about it, your first hit in the big leagues. That's tops. It means you're on your way. When you get the first hit, then you can get the rest."
Teasley Honored by First Ballot Selection to AABC Hall of Fame
Tuesday, January 6th, 1891
Earlier this month the selection committee contacted Chris Teasley and gave him the news that he had been elected to the American Association of Baseball Clubs Hall of Fame.

At his induction ceremony, the talented and gifted pitching star addressed the baseball immortals and adoring fans who gathered to honor him. "The feeling I've had since my election is a feeling I suspect will never go away. I'm told it never does. It's the highest high you can imagine. I wish you all could feel what I feel standing here. This is my last big game. This is my last big start. This is my last time get the final out. I dreamed of this as a child but I never really thought it would happen... and now it has."

Teasley retired from baseball at the age of 46 and left behind an illustrious career. He appeared in 672 games, pitched 4535 innings, struck out 2422 batters and compiled a fine 3.05 ERA. His career won-lost record was 296-198.
Hall of Fame Voting Results
Tuesday, January 6th, 1891

2B Antonio Diaz 91.6 (9th year) Inducted HOF
