The Buckeyes considered going professional themselves, but did not have the resources to do so. After some humiliating defeats against the rival Red Stockings in 1869, the club folded in 1870. Star pitcher Cherokee Fisher played for the Buckeyes in 1868. In 1869, the Buckeyes played on "Iron Slag" grounds, near today's Union Terminal. (en)
