Which is the oldest existing MLB team?


Which third basemen is better. Joe Crede or Brandon Inge?

Both the Atlanta Braves (then known as the Boston Red Stockings) and the Chicago Cubs (then known as the Chicago White Stockings) were founded in 1871 as members of the National Association. The White Stockings did not play from 1872-74 because of damage and losses from the Great Chicago Fire, so the Braves are the oldest team in continuous operation. The Cubs, meanwhile, are the oldest team still playing in their original city.

The first pro team was the Cincinnati Red Stockings, but they folded in 1870 and most of their players went to the Boston team; the current Reds can directly trace their history back no earlier than 1876.
