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 five contests between the Kansas City Royals (KCR), a Negro League barnstorming team, and three white All-Star teams in California, one organized by Bob Feller (ASF), one organized by Vince DiMaggio (VDA), and one organized by Kent Parker (PRK). Finally, Retrosheet has a box score for one game between the Birmingham Black Barons (BIR) and a team organized by Joe Sprinz (SPZ).
