White Sox { Pale Hose } Custom Fitted Cap

In 1900, the Western League changed its name to the American League. It was still officially a minor league, subject to the governing National Agreement and an underling of the National League. The NL actually gave permission to the AL to put a team in Chicago, provided he not use the city name in the team's branding. Comiskey moved his St. Paul club to the Near South Side and renamed it the White Stockings, grabbing a nickname that had once been used by the Chicago Cubs. The White Stockings won the 1900 American League pennant led by player-manager Dick Padden, the final WL/AL championship season as a minor league. After the season, the AL declined to renew its membership in the National Agreement and declared itself a major league.

Houston Apollos Custom Fitted Cap

The Houston Apollos joined the C.H.L. for the 1965/66 season having played the season before in Omaha. The Apollos played for 4 years before they suspended operations following the 1968/69 season. The Montreal Canadians, the Apollos parent team, were dissatisfied with their four year operation in Houston. Poor attendance, lack of good scheduling dates in Sam Houston Coliseum, and almost no available practice time in their own rink all contributed to Montreal moving their farm team operations to the American Hockey League.

Team colors were red, white, and blue but customized in old Houston Astro's colorway
