In 1882, the American Association was formed by H.D. McKnight of Pittsburgh and Chris. Von der Ahe of St. Louis. The purpose of this league was to allow players to play for whatever team they wanted whenever they wanted, bucking the trend of the reserve clause that was put into place by the National League. They also tried to appeal to the working man by charging 25 cents admission instead of the National League mandated 50 cents, plus they sold liquor and played ball on Sunday.
