Professional baseball in Cleveland began June 2, 1869 when the Cleveland Forest Citys met the Cincinnati Red Stockings. Cleveland endeavored to build another contender with Lajoie, Jackson, shortstop Ray Chapman, catcher Steve O'Neill, and pitchers Cy Falkenberg and Vean Gregg. Lajoie's departure, following the 1914 season, prompted a name change for the Cleveland franchise.
Cleveland was represented in baseball's first p r o f e s s i o n a l league, the National Association of 1871. Cleveland's return to pro baseball came in 1879 in the National League (established in 1876). Those efforts were undercut by a challenge from the upstart Federal League. On January 17, two Cleveland newspapers (The Leader and The Plain Dealer) reported that Indians had been chosen to replace Naps.
Despite perhaps the greatest game ever pitched, Joss' 1-0 perfect game victory against Chicago's Ed Walsh on October 2, the Naps finished second. Returning to player-only status in 1909, Nap reversed a declining batting average and engaged Ty Cobb in a memorable batting race in 1910.

"Sunny" Jim helped finance a deal that brought the great center fielder Tris Speaker (embroiled in a contract dispute with Boston Red Sox ownership) to Cleveland. Led by Speaker and manager Lee Fohl, the Indians narrowly missed the pennant in 1918.When miscommunication resulted in a key loss in 1919, Dunn dismissed Fohl and made Speaker player-manager. Under player-manager Lajoie, Cleveland peaked in 1908 in a down-to-the-wire pennant race with Chicago and Detroit. By the turn of the century, Cleveland was an established major league city, perfect for the designs of Ban Johnson who moved to turn his minor league Western League into major league competition for the N. Aided by the finances of Clevelander Charles Somers, Johnson's Western League became the American League and, after a year of minor league play in 1900, went head-to-head with the N. Cleveland's biggest baseball star in the early days of its new franchise was Napoleon Lajoie. With a first class ballpark, solid ownership, and future Hall of Famers in second baseman Lajoie, Joss, and outfielder Elmer Flick, Cleveland had the makings for championship contention.Som's comments drew criticism from federal lawmaker and Muslim leader Asaduddin Owaisi.
