The percentage of earned runs is not given, as the figures are unreliable as a criterion of pitching under the scoring rules of the present code, inasmuch as the estimate of earned runs is based on the play of the infielders as well as the pitchers, instead of on the play of the pitchers exclusively.

Brooklyn vs.

Defeats......

From the inception of the club's career in 1883, to its capture of League Championship honors in 1890, the President of the club, Mr. Chas. H. Byrne, has been the club's moving spirit; and to his remarkable executive ability, his liberal course of action, and his intelligent conception of what was regarded to conserve the best interest of his club and the game at large, is the success of the Brooklyn Club chiefly due.
