The team featured players such as Ed Delahanty, Sam Thompson, and Billy Hamilton.

Kling moved on to the Baltimore Orioles in 1892, a team which featured the 19-year-old John McGraw. He umpired one National League game that season.

Kling finished up his major league days pitching one game with the Louisville Colonels in 1895.
