the first homer in MLB history was hit, by a Chicago White Stocking (NL).

That would be by a player on the team now known as the Cubs then?

Shouldn't this post be in the Lot?

The only connections between our club and the one mentioned in the first post are that we share a city and that Charles Comiskey decided to "borrow" their former name when he couldn't use the name "Chicago" as part of the team name in 1900 when they moved to the South Side.
