Eventually, as interest increased, America's first professional baseball team was established in 1868--Cincinnati's Red Stockings.The Cincinnati Reds chronicles each season from the organization's early years, most notably the 1882 American Association pennant and the 1919 and 1940 National League pennants and World Series championships, including the infamous Chicago White Sox scandal.
