 < Previous season     

The 1877 St. Louis Brown Stockings finished the season in fourth place in the National League. After the season, they signed Louisville Grays stars Jim Devlin and George Hall. However, both became involved in a game-fixing scandal that led to the permanent expulsion of the two players (and others) from the league. The Grays and Brown Stockings both folded in the aftermath of the scandal.
