The National League was founded on February 2, 1876 under the leadership of businessman William A. Hulbert of Chicago. The original charter members were Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Hartford, Louisville, New York, Philadelphia and St. Louis. The original league represented four western and four eastern cities and was set up with clear rules and policies, standard player contracts, a code of conduct and a prohibition on the sale of intoxicants in parks under the league’s jurisdiction.
