Cincinnati Red Stockings

The United States consisted of 37 states. Ulysses S Grant was sworn in as President. The Golden Spike was driven into the ground in Promontory, Utah to create the first trans-continental railroad. Jesse James committed his first confirmed bank robbery. The Cincinnati Red Stockings became the first Major League Baseball team. Let’s think about this for just a minute first train across the country, only 37 states, and a Civil War general has just been inaugurated as president. This should really put into perspective how long the Reds organization has been a part of the Cincinnati landscape. Happy anniversary to the club, and here is to hoping they are around for another 150 years.
