Christian Friedrich (or Frederick) Wilhelm von der Ahe was a German-American entrepreneur. Unless you’re from St. Louis, or a huge baseball buff, you’ve probably never heard of him. He was one of the guys responsible for the American Association and the owner of the St. Louis Brown Stockings, the team that later became the Cardinals.
