The 1875 Red Stockings almost never lost a game, going 71-8. Al Spalding went 55-5, and the team hit .320 in a league that hit .254. Deacon White had the top batting average while Cal McVey had the best slugging average on the team. Both averages also led the National Association. Ross Barnes led the league in on-base percentage and runs scored while Jim O'Rourke led the league in home runs.
After the National League folded, some of the Red Stockings players remained in Boston to play with the 1876 Boston Red Caps, while some of them went to Chicago to play for the 1876 Chicago White Stockings.
