Awaiting Review
Date 1870
Location Chicago, IL, United States

What was the first organization that had no roots at all in a social club but was formed for the explicit purpose of fielding a professional team, leaving the stockholders or members or whatever they were called to exercise their arms at the poker table and do cardiovascular work by puffing harder on their cigars. I'm thinking the first one was the Chicago club in 1870.
