Cleveland Forest Citys (Sports Team)

Main Details
Please login to post content on this page.

The Forest Citys were a short lived professional baseball team based in Cleveland, Ohio in the early 1870s. The actual name of the team, as shown in standings, was Forest City, not "Cleveland". The name "Forest Citys" was used in the same generic style of the day in which the team from Chicago, Illinois was called the "Chicagos". "Forest Cities" is incorrect usage. Modern writers often refer to the club as the "Cleveland Forest Citys", which does not reflect 1870s usage, but does distinguish the team from the Rockford, Illinois professional team that was also called "Forest City".
