The Indianapolis Blues were a baseball team in the National League only during the 1878 season and finished fifth in the six-team league with a 24-36 record. They were managed by outfielder/first baseman/catcher John Clapp, and played their home games at South Street Park.

Their top-hitting regular was right fielder Orator Shafer, who batted .338 with a slugging percentage of .455. Their winningest pitcher was The Only Nolan (13-22, 2.57), but had two other starters with better ERAs: Jim McCormick (5-8, 1.69) and Tom Healey (6-4, 2.22).
