The Chicago White Stockings become one of eight members of the National League. On April 25, the first game in the history of the Chicago National League Ball Club took place with a great win over Louisville. The first run in team history is scored by center fielder Paul Hines on a throwing error in the second inning. Many players are worthy of recognition, but the first among them all was Adrian "Cap" Anson, who set the franchise record for career hits (2,995). "Cap" (Captain) managed the club for 19 years.
Baseball is an afterthought to most proletarian sports bettors. The baseball season is about 7 months long and tracking the records becomes hard work for baseball bettors. To become a winner betting on baseball, one must monitor stats for over 180 pitchers, starters and key relief pitchers. You must follow-up on key matchups, watch weather reports and home/away games of all professional baseball teams. If you are a gambling amature than MLB baseball betting is the most difficult sport to earn some cash collect profit, but for a professional gambler it can be the most profitable game out there. I lost a lot of money betting on the cubs, even more than gambling in a casino, but after keeping track on some important parameters I started gaining back my loses and even earn a reasonable amount of money.
