Interracial Baseball Games: 1937

For the 1937 season, we have found box scores for five games played in the Midwest between the Kansas City Monarchs (KCM) and a white major-league all-star team (MLS) and for two games played in Southern California between the Philadelphia Royal Giants (PRG) and the White Kings (WHK) as part of the California Winter League season.

Retrosheet has play-by-play accounts for three of these games. Play-by-play for the opening game of the California Winter League was published in the California Eagle. The play-by-play account for the October 5, 1937 contest between the Monarchs and the All Stars was deduced from newspaper game stories in the Davenport Daily Times and the Davenport Democrat and Leader. The play-by-play account for the October 10, 1937 contest between the Monarchs and All Stars was deduced from the game story and box score in the Wichita Eagle.

These seven games are summarized below with links to box scores (and play-by-play accounts where available). The box score files, event files, and team rosters for these games can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of this page.
