*The Kansas City Blues
baseballteam of the Western League played three seasons in Kansas City from 1898-1900. As the team's manager, Jim Manning, and a number of players from its 1900 roster played in Washington, D.C.in the 1901 season, it is generally believed that the franchise was transferred to Washington and became the Washington Senators (first team) in 1901 when the Western League became the American Leagueand declared itself a Major League. However, the history of the beginning of the American League is unclear and the Blues may have simply been folded to make room for the Senators. In any event, the Senators later moved to Minneapolis, Minnesotaand became the Minnesota Twinsin 1961.
