The 1892 St. Louis Browns season was the team's 11th season in St. Louis, Missouri and the first season in the National League. The Browns went 56-94 overall during the season, the eleventh-best in the league, better than only the Baltimore Orioles. They finished ninth in the first half of the season, and eleventh in the second half.

The Browns joined the National League when the American Association folded after the 1891 season and have remained a member ever since. This was the Browns final season before moving from the original Sportsman's Park to New Sportsman's Park where they would remain until 1920 when they would return to the old Sportsman's Park.
