The Cleveland Forest Citys played for 2 years in the National Association of Professional Base Ball Players league or simply National Association (NA). After it folded in 1872, another team named Cleveland Blues joined the 4-year-old National League (NL) in 1879 but withdrew 6 years later. Then in 1887, the Blues entered the American Association (AA) to replace a Pittsburgh team that moved to the NL. After two seasons in the AA and then nicknamed the Spiders, Cleveland returned to the NL.
