The Millers were hoping to prove in the new league, that they were the team to beat… especially to St. Paul whom they detested from the start. The Apostles had another idea however… as they won the American Association pennant in 1903. They now forever had the bragging rights that they were the inaugural winners of the A.A… something that the Millers could never take away from them. That may have been tough to swallow, but St. Paul wasn't done. They won the AA. title in 1904 as well … it seemed just for the simple fact of twisting that knife they had imbedded into Nicollet Park.
