Interracial Baseball Games: 1942

The 1942 season included two rare midseason interracial matchups featuring an All-Star team headlined by Dizzy Dean (ASD). They played the Kansas City Monarchs (KCM) at Wrigley Field and the Homestead Grays (HOM) at Griffith Stadium. We also have five games played in Southern California in October and November featuring a black barnstorming team that called itself the Philadelphia Royal Giants and white All-Star teams organized by Joe Pirrone (PIR) and Kent Parker (PRK).

These seven 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.
