The 1884 Milwaukee Brewers were a replacement team in the Union Association, joining the league from the Northwestern League along with the St. Paul Saints. They played their first game on September 27, going 8–4 to finish the season with the second-best winning percentage in the league, behind only the league champion St. Louis Maroons. This was the only season this version of the team existed, and indeed the only season the Union Association existed.
