History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

After winning the Federal League pennant in 1914, the Indianapolis Hoosiers moved to Newark, NJ in 1915 and became the Newark Peppers, sometimes shortened to the "Peps". They were competitive in 1915 but ultimately finished in fifth place. After the league folded, outfielder Edd Roush went on to a Hall of Fame career.
