One correction, not on the data, but on the nickname.
This team was simply known as the Bostons. Once the AL entry arrived at the run of the century, they became known as the "Nationals", and the other teams was the "Americans." Neither was an official nickname, but simply a term of reference.
As for "Beaneaters", this was one of three monikers that were creations of the press, but that were never widely used by players or fans. They were also referred to as the Triumvirs or Seleemen (after their mgr. Frank Selee). The AL entry was alternately called Pilgrims, Puritans, Somersets (after skipper Charles Somers) and Collinsmen (after manager Collins). Also the Plymouth Rocks was apparently in vogue among the writers.
But neither team was actually known by any of these nicknames.
