The 1884 Baltimore club was one of the strongest ones in the Union Association, in that it lasted over 100 games and had a record over .500. Over two-thirds of their wins came from Bill Sweeney while Emmett Seery and Yank Robinson guided their offense.
A different team with the same name also played 13 games that year in the Eastern League, going 3-10 in two weeks of play before folding due to an inability to draw enough fans as the third team in town behind the AA's Orioles and the UA Monumentals.
