Interracial Baseball Games: 1927

Interracial games in 1927 fall into three groups. First, a team of American League All-Stars (ALS) barnstormed in the Northeast (mostly Pennsylvania and New York) against the Homestead Grays (HOM) with one additional game played in Atlantic City against the Atlantic City Bacharach Giants (ACY). We have box scores for seven of these games.

Second, as they did for many years, the Baltimore Black Sox (BLS) played an "All-Star" team (ASB) every Sunday in October. We have box scores for four of these games.

And finally, a white team organized by Joe Pirrone (PIR) played a barnstorming team in Los Angeles. In this case, the Hilldale Giants (HIL). We have box scores for four of these games.

These 15 games are summarized below with links to box scores. The box score files and team rosters for these games can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of this page.
