During the early 1890s the Sioux City Cornhuskers played in baseball’s minor Western League (WL), which was part of a National Agreement with the National League (NL). Then in 1894 Charles Comiskey, a former major league star with the league’s St. Louis Browns and previous manager of the Cincinnati Reds, purchased the champion Cornhuskers franchise when his contract expired with the Reds. For personal reasons he transferred his team from Sioux City, Iowa, to St. Paul, Minnesota, where it became the St. Paul Apostles for 1 year and then St. Paul Saints through the league’s 1899 season.
