Williams had a rough April for the Nationals, his ERA ballooning to 7.77 before he pitched a brilliant game at the end of the month, pitching six innings of one-hit shut-out ball against the New York Mets.

Chicago Cubs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (4373 words)
The success and fame of the Cincinnati Red Stockings of 1869, baseball's first openly professional team, led to a minor explosion of openly professional teams in 1870, each with the singular goal of defeating the Red Stockings.
While this was going on, behind the scenes the club President, William Hulbert, was leading the formation of a new and stronger organization, the National League.
