Did St. Louis ever have two baseball teams?

The article discusses the presence of two baseball teams in St. Louis from 1875 to 1877. It was a time of high rivalry between the St. Louis Brown Stockings and the St. Louis Red Stockings. Both teams competed for the title of the National League Champion, with the Brown Stockings ultimately winning the title in 1877. The Red Stockings were then disbanded, leaving St. Louis with only one team. This single team eventually evolved into today’s St. Louis Cardinals. Therefore, St. Louis had two baseball teams for only two years, from 1875 to 1877.
