Imagine only playing 30 games. Compared to our 162 now it is hard to imagine. But that is what it came to in 1871 for the Boston Red Stockings.

We ended up in 2nd place (tied with the Chicago White Stockings) behind the Philadelphia Athletics. This was the first year for the National Association of Professional Base Ball Players.
