    I'm quite certain this is the same organization that joined the A.A. Kind of like Buffalo and the St. Louis Brown Stockings ne: Cardinals did. The Browns had Ned Cuthbert running them before they joined the A.A. Can't remember Buffalo's deal but they went from like independent to the International League to the N.L. with Pud Galvin on the squad.

    Bottom right has to be Pete Browning.

    This image is included on page 13 in the book Baseball in Louisville:

    The caption in that book states that it is a semi-pro team. A few of them may have been on the 1882 team in the American Association, but the picture quality of the 1880 team is poor, which makes it tough to match up the players with other images. (You should check any Louisville newspapers from 1880 that are available online, to see if they name any of the players on the Eclipse team.)

    I will also note that, among the group of photos labeled 1871-1892 at the "historic Louisville" page you've linked to, is an undated photo (bottom left in the group of six) that belongs further down on the page. This is the 1907 team. Heinie Peitz is in the top row, far left, and Duff Cooley is in the middle row, third from the left. 1907 is the only season that they were both on the team.

    Help identify players in photo Louisville 1880

    Came across this. Its says it is a team photo of the 1880 Louisville Eclipse team. Was wondering if anyone can identify any of the players? Some look familiar, but not 100% sure.

    Photo is not of the best quality, here is the link to where it is online. If I find a better copy I will share.

    Thanks for any help!
