Interracial Baseball Games: 1945

The 1945 off-season saw a five-game series played between an All-Star team organized by Chuck Dressen (CDA) and a Negro National League All-Star team (NNS) managed by Biz Mackey. Retrosheet has box scores for four games played as consecutive Sunday doubleheaders at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. Retrosheet also has box scores for two additional contests between the Kansas City Royals (KCR), a Negro League barnstorming team, and two white All-Star teams in California, one organized by Bob Feller (ASF) and one organized by Vince DiMaggio (VDA). There were a number of other interracial contests played in California in the 1945 offseason but Retrosheet has been unable to find box scores for most of them.

The six games for which Retrosheet has found box scores 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.
