UPDATE:i shrunk the "C" to make it look better

This is in honor of the very first professional baseball team.This is from the 1869 Cincinnati Reds.This will

replace the Reds alt 1 uni.There were no numbers or names on the unis from this ERA but i dont like not having at least

the jersey numbers on them so i went ahead and left the numbers on the back.

In 1869, the Cincinnati Base Ball Club, led by Hall Of Famer Harry Wright, shocked the sporting world by becoming

the first openly all-professional base ball nine. Dressed in knickerbockers with flashy crimson hosiery, the team

became known as the Cincinnati Red Stockings.

The team barnstormed the nation coast-to-coast, challenging - and defeating - every base ball club it played that

year. With their amazing 57-o record in 1869, the Red Stockings introduced America to the new game of base ball

and put Cincinnati on the sporting map.


Contrary to what you may recall from learning sports history, Abner Doubleday did not invent the game of baseball

in Cooperstown, New York in 1839. This myth, which was popularized in the early 1900s, has been debunked in the

past 30 years.

Many ball and bat games were played in the United States in the early 19th century, but none closely resembled the

modern game. The game of baseball as we know it traces its founding to 1845 when the first organized team in the

U.S., the Knickerbocker Base Ball Club of New York City (led by Alexander Cartwright), set down written rules.

By 1858 the game had become so popular that the National Association of Base Ball Players was formed and significant

modifications began to be made in the old Knickerbocker rules.

Organized baseball came to Cincinnati in the 1860's. The Buckeye Base Ball Club and the Red Stockings, the namesake

of the Cincinnati Baseball Club and the current Cincinnati Reds professional team, became the dominant teams in

the city.

In 1869, as base ball became more popular and competitive, the Red Stockings, under the leadership of captain Harry

Wright (who is enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame) decided to put all of his players under contract,

thus creating the first all-professional team. The Red Stockings recruited some of the top players in the country,

with only one member of the team from Cincinnati. Under the direction of Wright, the players underwent rigorous

training and practice, and developed many strategies (such as the relay throw) that we take for granted today.

The Red Stockings played teams from coast-to-coast, and played well. With Wright's skillful management and

spectacular collection of talented players (with Harry's brother, George Wright, the superstar of the bunch),

the Red Stockings went 57-0 to record the only undefeated season in baseball history and drew an estimated

200,000 spectators. The national attention they brought to themselves and the sport of baseball proved that the

American public would support the professional game.

However, the financial strain on the local club was so great that the Cincinnati Red Stockings folded after the

1870 season. But enough other clubs had joined the professional ranks to form the first professional league, the

National Association, in 1871. The Cincinnati club never joined this league, but the club did reorganize in 1876

and joined the new National League. The Reds have represented Cincinnati in professional baseball ever since.*

* The only exception is 1881, when the Reds were thrown out of the National League for selling beer at the ballpark

and allowing games to be played at their ballpark on Sundays.
