1884 Altoona Mountain City season

The 1884 Altoona Mountain City or Altoona Pride were a team in the Union Association (UA). They started the season with a 6-19 record, then folded following the game of May 31, 1884. This was the only season this team existed, and indeed the only season the Union Association existed. Despite very small market size, Altoona was selected as a charter member of the UA because of its strategic location; it was a railroad city that lay conveniently about halfway between the western teams and the eastern teams in the UA. The idea was that teams traveling between the western and eastern portions of the league could stop in Altoona for a series along the way.
