Page "Baltimore Orioles" Paragraph 6
At the end of the 1900 season, the American League removed itself from baseball's National Agreement ( the formal understanding between the NL and the minor leagues ).
As a result of several franchise shifts, the Brewers were one of only two Western League teams that didn't fold, move or get kicked out of the league ( the other being the Detroit Tigers ).
In its first game in the American League, the team lost to the Detroit Tigers 14 – 13 after blowing a 9-run lead in the 9th inning.
During the first American League season in 1901, they finished last ( 8th place ) with a record of 48 – 89.
During its lone Major League season, the team played at Lloyd Street Grounds, between 16th and 18th Streets in Milwaukee.
