Selee managed the Boston Beaneaters (1890-1901) and the Chicago Cubs (1902-1905). His Beaneaters captured five NL pennants during his tenure (1891-93, 1897-98). His 1892 team, aided by the first 150-game schedule in history, became the first team to win 100 games in a season. With the Cubs, he created the famous Tinker to Evers to Chance infield combination, primarily by converting Chance from a catcher to a first baseman. Although he had to retire early due to illness, he had built the foundation of a baseball dynasty, and the Cubs won the pennant four times in the five seasons after he left.
