    William Hulbert

    William Hulbert from the Chronology

    Dec 9, 1880 - The NL reelects William Hulbert as president‚ and adopts several new rules‚ including:

    Dec 6, 1877 - William Hulbert is reelected NL president and Nick Young NL secretary. Hartford is stripped of its membership. The NL puts limits on the games its clubs can play against non-league opponents‚ possibly to avoid as many defeats as they suffered this past year.

    Dec 10, 1876 - After a 5-day league meeting in Cleveland‚ these results are announced: the Philadelphia Athletics and New York Mutuals are expelled by unanimous vote; a uniform and lively baseball is agreed upon; the playing rules for 1877 are modified‚ and William Hulbert is elected NL president. The A's and Mutuals had declined to make a final western swing at the end of the season‚ and charges of hippodroming-not playing at 100%-continued to dog the two teams.
