Interracial Baseball Games: 1928

The 1928 interracial games are somewhat different from the surrounding years in that they include only one game played in California, between an All-Star team put together by Joe Pirrone (PIR) and a team called the Cleveland Giants (CLG). In addition, box scores have been found for four games played in Baltimore between the Black Sox (BLS) and a white "All-Star" team (ASB), six games played between the Homestead Grays (HOM) and an American League All-Star team (ALS), and two games between a major-league All-Star team (MLS) and the Hilldale Giants (HIL).

These 13 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.
