Barkley remained with the Pittsburg Club two seasons, in 1886, while it was a member of the American Association, and 1887, the ﬁrst year it joined the National League. At the beginning of the present season the Pittsburg Club had three second basemen, Dunlap, Smith and Barkley, and, feeling that it could not retain them all, Barkley was therefore sold to the Kansas City Club, of the American Association. Barkley has no superiors in his position as a ﬁelder; besides he is a heavy batsman and a good base runner.
His ﬁrst regular engagement, however, was in 1882, with the professional team of Springﬁeld, Ill. ) Club, of the Northwestern League, with which he remained throughout that season and part of 1884, until it disbanded. He ﬁnished the latter part of the season of 1884 with the Kansas City Club, of the Union Association. In 1885 he went to the Cincinnati Club, with which he has remained ever since. He has made a great name for himself, and is generally conceded to be one of the best catchers in the profession.
At the close of the latter year he, with several other Toledo players, was transferred to St. Louis, President Von der Ahe having bought the best players of the Toledo team so as to strengthen his St. Louis Browns. While with Toledo Barkley played second base, and gained a great reputation for himself in that position. He ﬁlled the same position for the St. Louis Browns during the season of 1885. The following Winter the Baltimore and Pittsburg Clubs both offered to purchase Barkley’s release. The latter, however, was more prompt in its dealings, and captured the prize.
