Great post! I love this stuff!

It still thrills me to tell Yankees fans that their beloveds were once upon a time a National League team. In fact, they date back to the American Association. When the AA broke up they were absorbed by the NL.

Then when the NL "contracted" in '00 the Baltimore Orioles were left out in the cold for a year until the AL was formed for the 1901 season. In '03 they moved to New York and were nicknamed "the Hilltoppers" for a while until the name "Yankees" stuck.

What a great time of year for baseball talk.
