10 Oldest Baseball Teams in America
Despite the fact that baseball is played in a number of nations throughout the world today, it is generally considered an American sport, and it is even referred to as “America’s Passtime.” While the sport’s origins may be traced back to two English sports, rounders and cricket, the foundation for contemporary baseball was laid down in the United States around the mid-19th century. It was as a result of these factors that some of the world’s oldest baseball teams were created in the United States throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s.
10. Minnesota Twins
The year 1901 was the year of establishment. Baseball’s first season began in 1901. Washington Senators/Nationals were the team’s previous name(s). The Washington Senators baseball team, which is now known as the Minnesota Twins, was established in 1901. A new franchise in Washington, D.C. was required when the newly founded American League relocated from Kansas City to the nation’s capital. The Senators were the team’s original moniker until it was renamed to the Nationals in 1905, although the two names were sometimes used interchangeably.
Paul and Minneapolis). After relocating to Minnesota, the team experienced tremendous success, winning the American League pennant in 1965. The Twins experienced another period of success in the late 1980s and early 1990s, winning two World Series championships in 1987 and 1991, respectively.
9. Oakland Athletics
The year 1901 was the year of establishment. Baseball’s first season began in 1901. Philadelphia Athletics; Kansas City Athletics were the team’s previous names. The Oakland Athletics were formerly known as the Philadelphia Athletics, who were founded in 1901 when the Western League was reconstituted as the American League, the second major league after the National League. The Philadelphia Athletics were the first team to play in the American League. Six American League pennants were won by this squad throughout its first decade in the league’s first season.
Next a little more than a decade in Kansas City, the Athletics relocated to Oakland, California the following year.
8. Los Angeles Dodgers
Year the company was founded: 1883 Baseball’s first season began in 1884. Prior team name(s): Brooklyn Atlantics, Brooklyn Grays, Brooklyn Bridegrooms, Brooklyn Grooms, Brooklyn Superbas, Brooklyn Trolley Dodgers, Brooklyn Robins, Brooklyn Dodgers, Brooklyn Braves, Brooklyn Braves, Brooklyn Braves, Brooklyn Braves The Brooklyn Grays were a minor-league baseball club affiliated with the Inter-State Association of Professional Baseball Clubs when the Los Angeles Dodgers franchise was established in 1883 as the Brooklyn Dodgers.
The club turned professional the next year and entered the American Association, before finally transferring to the National League in 1890.
In addition to being a highly successful franchise (winning six World Series championships and 22 National League pennants), the Dodgers were the first major league baseball team to hire an African-American player when they hired Jackie Robinson in 1947, thanks to the efforts of general manager Branch Rickey.
7. Philadelphia Phillies
Year the company was founded: 1883 Baseball’s first season began in 1883. Previous name(s):Philadelphia Friends Meeting Soon after the team’s founding in 1883 as the “Quakers,” the Philadelphia Phillies changed their name to the Phillies, giving them the oldest and longest-running one-name and one-city club in any American professional sport, according to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Having been awarded a spot in the National League to replace the Worcester Brown Stockings, the team was formed by Al Reach, a sporting goods manufacturer and former professional baseball player, and attorney John Rogers.
Despite just having 17 victories out of 98 games, the 1883 season was the poorest in the franchise’s history (.173 percent).
As a result of their efforts the following year, the Philadelphia Phillies have gone on to win two World Series, seven National League pennants, and 11 East Division championships in the intervening years.
6. San Francisco Giants
Year the company was founded: 1883 Baseball’s first season began in 1883. New York Gothams; New York Giants were the team’s previous name(s). Prior to relocating to San Francisco in 1958, the Giants were known as the New York Gothams when they first began play in 1883. Founded in New York by rich tobacconist John B. Day and experienced amateur baseball player Jim Mutrie – who also owned the New York Mets – the team was the second one to be formed by the duo in the city. An article from the time period stated that after winning a game against the Philadelphia Phillies, Mutrie exclaimed, “My great lads!
Horace Stoneham, the Giants’ owner, agreed to join the Dodgers in their transfer to San Francisco after convincing the mayor of the city, George Christopher, and the Dodgers owner, Walter O’Malley, to make the move.
5. Cincinnati Reds
Year the company was founded: 1881 Baseball’s first season began in 1882. Cincinnati Red Stockings; Cincinnati Redlegs were the team’s previous name(s). It is recorded in the Cincinnati Reds’ history that the Cincinnati Red Stockings were the first all-professional baseball club, having been created in 1866 by the Reds. However, while this information is correct, the name of this early Cincinnati Red Stockings team does not correspond to the name of the first incarnation of the present organization, which was founded in 1881.
As a result of their departure from the American Association to play in the National League in 1889, the Red Stockings changed their name to Reds for the 1890 season, before changing it again to the Redlegs in 1954 and finally back to the Reds in 1959.
4. Pittsburgh Pirates
Year the company was founded: 1881 Baseball’s first season began in 1882. Allegheny; Pittsburgh Allegheneys; Pittsburgh Pirates were some of the team’s previous names. The Pittsburgh Pirates have a long and illustrious history that dates back to around October 15, 1881, when the strongest team in the area was selected to join the American Association as a founding member and begin playing in the 1882 season– the team was known as the “Allegheny” because their home field was in Allegheny City.
The club competed in the first World Series in 1903 and went on to win their first championship the following year, in 1909 Since 1993, the Pirates have seen both success and failure, winning five World Series while also suffering through 20 straight losing seasons from 1993 to 2012, the longest such skid by any North American sports club in history.
3. St. Louis Cardinals
Year the company was founded: 1882 Baseball’s first season began in 1882. St. Louis Brown Stockings; St. Louis Browns; St. Louis Perfectos were some of the previous names for this item. The St. Louis Brown Stockings, the forerunners of the present St. Louis Cardinals organization, were founded in 1882. Two additional incarnations of the St. Louis Brown Stockings baseball clubs existed prior to the Cardinals’ inception, but owing to game-fixing scandals, expulsion from the National League, and significant reorganizations, these early teams have only a tenuous relationship to the current franchise.
Louis squad, restructured it, and established it as the first team of the American Association, with the goal of competing against the National League teams.
2. Chicago Cubs
Year the company was founded: 1871 Baseball’s first season began in 1876. Chicago White Stockings; Chicago Colts; Chicago Orphans were some of the team’s previous names. The Chicago Cubs are another team that claims to be the oldest in Major League Baseball, however their claims are sometimes challenged. Despite the fact that the Chicago White Stockings were formed in 1871, the club did not play for the next two years as a result of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which occurred at the same time the Cubs were founded.
They were also one of the first teams to join the National League, which was formed when the National Association was replaced by the National League in 1876.
1. Atlanta Braves
Year the company was founded: 1871 Baseball’s first season began in 1876. The Boston Red Stockings, Boston Red Caps, Boston Beaneaters, Boston Doves, and Boston Rutlers had all previously been known as the Boston Braves, Boston Bees, and the Milwaukee Braves. Although there is some controversy about which team in Major League Baseball is the oldest, the Atlanta Braves are frequently referred to as the oldest continuously operational baseball team in the United States of America. Originally known as the Boston Red Stockings, the team was founded in 1871 and was one of the eight foundation teams of the National League, which was organized in 1876.
The Red Stockings played in Boston until 1952, when they relocated to Milwaukee, where they adopted the moniker Milwaukee Braves.
During its time in Boston, the team went through various name changes until settling on the Braves in 1941. In 1966, the club relocated for the last time, this time to Atlanta, where it has been ever since.
Major League Baseball Team Histories
Throughout history, baseball fans have asked the same question: “How did my team do today?” From the first generation of baseball fans who tore open newspapers to devour box scores to the generations who gathered around radios and then televisions to today’s fans who get scores on their cell phones or via the Internet, the question has remained the same. For a baseball fan, the answer to that question immediately defines the quality of his or her life. The days when the response is “my team won” just seem brighter and better than the days when the answer is “other teams won.” The passion for a baseball club is intense and is not weakened by the passage of time or distance.
- Perhaps this is due to the fact that we take a team to heart from a young age, when players and teams appear to be Olympian heroes to be adored and respected by the public.
- For whatever reason, we are drawn to the game because it is played every day for six months, and the fortunes of the team become as important to us as the fortunes of our friends and family.
- Baseball, like life, is full of difficult daily challenges, with regular disappointments that we can all relate to and occasional bursts of success that we can all be proud of.
- It is common for baseball teams to be imbued with the legendary personalities of their achievements and history.
- The Giants are a refuge for sluggers, while the Mets are a breeding ground for excellent pitchers year after year.
- And the Yankees, well, they’re the Yankees.
- Baseball Almanac pays homage to the thirty clubs that compete now as well as their predecessors – all of which have carried the torch for the game throughout its history.
Each squad also has its share of notable firsts, spectacular accomplishments, record-breakers, and tales that need to be told about their respective eras.

National League of baseball is founded
A new professional baseball league is born on February 2, 1876, when the National League of Professional Baseball Clubs (later known as the National League (NL)) is established. When the American League (AL) was formed in 1901, it hosted the first World Series, which took place in 1903, marking the beginning of the modern era. The first formal game of baseball in the United States was played in Hoboken, New Jersey, in June 1846, according to historical records. The Cincinnati Red Stockings were the first professional baseball team in the United States when they were founded in 1869.
- Chicago industrialist William Hulbert founded the National League of Professional Baseball Clubs in 1876 to take over for the National Association, which he considered to be disorganized and unscrupulous.
- The Boston Red Stockings (now the Atlanta Braves) joined the league in 1893.
- Louis Brown Stockings joined the league in 1894.
- With the introduction of the World Series in 1903, the top team from each league began playing against each other in a single tournament.
- That changed in 1962 when the New York Mets and the Houston Colt.45s (later known as the Houston Astros) became members.
- (now the Washington Nationals).
- Colorado’s Rocky Mountains and Florida’s Everglades The Florida Marlins joined the National League in 1993, and the Arizona Diamondbacks joined the league in 1998.
Major League Baseball introduced inter-league play in 1997, in which each National League team competed in a set of regular-season games against an opposing American League team from the same division.
One significant difference between the two leagues remains, however: the American League’s 1973 adoption of the designated hitter rule, which enabled clubs to swap another batter in the lineup for the pitcher, who was notoriously bad at hitting, continues to exist.

COACH OF THE YEAR
When it comes to being a head coach, the most important characteristics to look for are honesty, dedication, and meticulousness. In its inaugural season, the Malvern Prep Friars baseball team had an impressive 26-4 record while facing possibly the most difficult schedule in Pennsylvania. In addition, the Friars won the Inter-Academic League championship and were widely considered to be one of the best two or three teams in the state. Fred Hilliard has been named The Daily Local News Coach of the Year in recognition of his contributions in this area.
Malvern prep was always on point, whether it was bunting the baseball effectively, sprinting the bases, or moving a runner with an opposite field fly ball or grounder.
Hilliard expressed his gratitude for having such a devoted and focused group of 15 seniors to work with this season.
“When you have special players, the reason they are special is because they do not want to be treated as special,” Hilliard said after the friars won the inter-Academic championship.
“I consider myself fortunate to be surrounded by such a bunch.” Since taking over the Malvern Prep program, the Friars have consistently been one of the best teams in the state, and they are usually listed among the best baseball teams in the country, according to Baseball America.
