1884 Providence Grays season

The Providence Grays went 84–28 during the 1884 season, easily capturing the National League championship. They then faced the American Association champions, the New York Metropolitans, in the very first World Series. Thanks to excellent pitching by Charles "Old Hoss" Radbourn, the Grays swept the series and became the "World Champions."

During the last half of the regular season, Radbourn was the team's main pitcher after Charlie Sweeney jumped to the Union Association. Radbourn won 59 games for the Grays, which set a Major League Baseball record that has stood for over 120 years.
