  1. Barry Leonard (Indianapolis Stripes Owner) was instrumental in leading the city of Indianapolis to fund the construction of a new public stadium ($194,000). The stadium was to be used by the local university's baseball team in addition to the city's professional team (Indianapolis Stripes). This stadium's main structure was constructed from red brick and fitted with wood benches that were painted green to match team colors. The outfield bleachers were of wooden construction also painted completely green. A bronze plaque to commemorate the Stripes 1910 United League championship was placed into the outer brick facade of the stadium, along with several more empty spots for future championships. The freshly constructed ballpark would become the new home of the Indianapolis Stripes as they would transition from the privately funded Leonard Park (constructed 1905, 9,217; Conv-F, Comf-D, Sight-D), which had just hosted several iconic games in the last UNBA World Championship Series. Indianapolis' new stadium was christened 'The People's Park' on March 20th, 1911, in time for the Stripes first game of the 1911 season.

  8. It is another professional league in my universe. Once the New York Militia left the league has had its talented players signed away by teams in the UNBA. In 1910 it is the second highest level of professional baseball. At some point the NCBL will most likely transition to an AAA league. I plan on posting a more detailed short post on the NCBL in the coming days. Please post your ballots.
  9. He could have easily played for a team based out of a Pittsburgh athletic club. I am just pulling names out of the air: West Penn Athletic Club, North Pittsburgh Athletic Club, Central Athletic Club. He could have also played for a pro team that was not a part of the UBA (1886-1900) or NOBL (1893-1900). For example the NCBL (1879-present) was the league that the New York Militia dominated through the 1880's and 1890's. Pittsburgh could have had a team in the NCBL during that time period for which he could have played.

  11. The Ohio Taylors, Park Athletic Club, Chicago Crusaders, they also played some a few local college teams, along with club baseball teams. In the early years professional teams would play games against pretty much anybody they could get a crowd to come watch. The Park Athletic Club were associated with a Chicago athletic center and played a few years here and there in the UBA. Eventually they could no longer compete at the professional level, so the club folded. The athletic center still has local baseball games for members to this day.
