Marylebone Cricket Club is a cricket club in London founded in 1787. It is the world's biggest cricket brand. It owns, and is based at, Lord's Cricket Ground in St John's Wood, London NW8. MCC was formerly the governing body of cricket both in England and Wales as well as worldwide. In 1993 many of its global functions were transferred to the International Cricket Council and its English governance passed to the Test and County Cricket Board at the same time. MCC revised the Laws of Cricket in 1788 and continues to reissue them, and remains the copyright holder. It raises its own teams, some of which are rated first-class depending on the status of the opposition: for example, to mark the beginning of each English season, MCC plays the reigning County Champions. MCC sides regularly tour overseas to all cricket-playing nations and to developing ones as well, e.g. Afghanistan in 2006, and the club has an extensive fixture list every season throughout Britain, particularly with schools.

The Pittsburgh Burghers were a baseball team in the Players' League, a short-lived Major League that existed only for the 1890 season. The team included a number of players who had jumped from the National League's Pittsburgh Alleghenys, including Hall of Famers Pud Galvin, Ned Hanlon, and Jake Beckley. Hanlon served as the team's Manager. Meanwhile, John Tener, who would go on to represent Pittsburgh in the United States Congress and be elected the 25th Governor of Pennsylvania, finished his pitching career with the Burghers in 1890. Later Tener would become the president of the National League, and a director of the Philadelphia Phillies. In its only season, the Burghers finished in 6th place with a 60-68 record. The team played at the Alleghenies' former home, Exposition Park. The stadium and the team was located in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, which was not incorporated into the city of Pittsburgh until 1907. The area is currently known today as the North Side of Pittsburgh, and the site of Exposition Park was later used for Three Rivers Stadium. In an indirect way, it can be argued that the Burghers, alone among the old Players' League franchises, still exist today. Nearly all of the Alleghenys' stars had jumped to the upstart league, and the resulting drain on attendance led Alleghenys owner Dennis McKnight to return his franchise to the National League. He then joined the Burghers' ownership group as a minority owner, and this group repurchased the Pittsburgh National League franchise under a different corporate name. It is this franchise that forms the current ownership lineage of today's Pirates. In fact, the Pirates nickname can also be traced back to the Burghers. In 1890 the then-Alleghenys scooped up every star player from the Burghers, including several who had jumped from other National League and American Association clubs. This led an official from the AA's Philadelphia Athletics to denounce the Alleghenys' actions as "piratical"--an accusation that led the Alleghenys to rename themselves the Pirates for the next season.
