The Original Cleveland Blues team began in 1878 as an amateur club. In 1879 they became part of the National League of Professional Baseball Clubs.
The club folded after the 1884 season after finishing in 7th place. They sold all of their players to the Brooklyn Trolley Dodgers, which later became the modern day L.A. Dodgers!
The Blues returned to Cleveland and played at National League Park in 1887, but in the American Association. In 1889, they changed their team name to the Cleveland Spiders, and featured a young pitcher named Cy Young.
1900 was the start of today's Cleveland guardians. The team began in 1900 as the Bluebirds (Blues) and landed on the Indians in 1915.
The latest edition of the Blues was founded on September 13th, 2008 (Blues Day), by a group of Clevelanders and baseball fans.
They continue spreading their love of baseball and it's history, making friends throughout the vintage base ball community.
