1894 November

1st  Former Providence P Charles Sweeney is convicted of manslaughter in San Francisco.

8th  Mike “King” Kelly, probably the most popular baseball player of the 19th century, succumbs to pneumonia in Boston. Like his hard-living teammates, Ned Williamson and Silver Flint, of the 1886 championship Chicago White Stockings, Kelly dies at age 36.

15th  Sporting Life erroneously claims that “Bid McPhee will hardly discard the glove next season now that he is accustomed to wearing it.”

16th  Managers Al Buckenberger (Pittsburgh) and William Barnie (Louisville) and Louisville star Fred Pfeffer are expelled from the NL for planning with officials of the proposed American Association (previously called the National Association). The 2 managers are reinstated before the end of the year, but Pfeffer must wait until the end of February 1895 before he is welcomed back into the fold.
