Post by firstname.lastname@example.org
The Boston entry was among six teams in the American League of Professional Football, finishing in third place (4W-1L-0D, 8 points) as the season was called off after a few weeks. Teams were organized by National League baseball owners, hoping to utilize playing fields while baseball teams were away. Boston played at the South End Grounds.
The Boston Globe story noted: “Boston Capt. Puleston had his men out for work both morning and afternoon … at the South end grounds. … players will wear a black uniform with a white belt and cap. In the home games every team will be obliged to wear white shirts.”
