That may have been the most advanced base ball league of its time, but I think it takes a powerful imagination to see that as a "major league."
#9 It's at best the equivalent of counting AA stats.
#13 Current double-A minors -- though much more uneven than this. The weakest teams in the NA weren't close to even that level.
Hey Bill, the rise of Derek Jeter up the all-time hits chart has prompted the question of whether Cap Anson's hits in the National Association should count towards his total. The Elias Bureau, and thus MLB, says no. Baseball-Reference and others say yes. What's your take?
No. It's preposterous to suggest that the National Association was of quality comparable to major league baseball. It was well and comfortably below the level of good high school baseball today.
