There were four teams called the Hottentots. The third team with that name was a transplant from Toledo, Ohio. It got to the point where the other owners were not to thrilled with Denny Long. League president Ban Johnson wanted to move the team back to Toledo, but he was unable to find suitable owners. Not to mention that another team was being formed for the 1896 season. In the end the team was dropped from the league. Terre Haute gave no fight as they were applying to join the Western Association.
