|Date||Wednesday, November 24, 1886|
[reporting on the NL meeting 11/17/1886] … A committee was then appointed with power to confer with the representatives of the Pittsburg (Association) Club and arrange, if the club so wished, for their admission to League membership. Messrs. Day, Spalding and Rogers formed the committee appointed, and the delegates then took a recess until 3 P.M.
Upon reassembling the committee reported that they had conferred with the Pittsburg representatives and that the latter had formally applied for admission to the League. The application was then voted upon , and the club at the Smoky City was admitted to the fold by the unanimous vote of the meeting. Messrs. W. A. Nimick and H. K. Scandrett—who, it seems, arrived in the city ?Tuesday and kept their identity and the nature of their business concealed from the public—were then admitted to the meeting as representatives of the new member.
