    ONA has almost no noteworthy hitters, and a small handful of noteworthy pitchers, including Candy Cummings and George Zettlein.

    OEF has Dan Brouthers, Jack Glasscock, Hardy Richardson, Paul Hines, Deacon White, George Bradley, Pud Galvin, Jim McCormick, Hoss Radbourn, Charlie Sweeney, Lady Baldwin, Jim Devlin, and John Montgomery Ward.

    That league Id column was interesting. Could that be used to add to a letter decade draft ... Letter Decade League draft. Is there enough juice in the lesser leagues to make that a sub category some time in the future?

    I think ONA was the National Association teams and OEF was Other Early Franchises? I think it was a catch-all.

    I really like that King Kelly has a professional team that was called the "Cincinnati Kelly's Killers"

    Here's the guys with the 7th and 8th best WARs for the team:

    Charlie Bell:

    Nickname
    Baldwin was given the nickname "Lady" because of his "quiet ways" and his refusal to swear or to come into contact with either tobacco or liquor.

    John Slagle:

    "As the season progressed, Mike Kelly and his killers found themselves in jail frequently as a result of attempting to play baseball on Sundays. At the time, the National League did not allow Sunday baseball games to be played. As a result, the rival Association capitalized on this by having their teams play Sunday games. The problem for Cincinnati was that the city had the blue law in place which also disallowed Sunday games. Owners of the club made repeated attempts at playing games on Sundays. Sometimes the Mayor of Cincinnati, Mayor John B. Mosby, would enforce the law and other times he would not. When the Mayor did enforce the law, the Killers and the players from the opposing team found themselves in jail."
