Negro League Baseball

Retrosheet is pleased to present game data for Negro League games as described below. To date, Retrosheet has compiled data on 6,116 Negro League games which were played in 337 different ballparks in 259 cities across 33 states, the District of Columbia, and two foreign countries (Mexico and Canada). We have compiled at least some statistics for 2,759 players who participated in one or more of these games. These games include not only regular-season Negro League games, but also all-star games, playoff games, and exhibition games between major-league caliber teams. This latter set includes several hundred games played between White and Black major-league baseball players (so those 2,759 players include players such as Dizzy Dean, Bob Feller, Lefty Grove, Babe Ruth, and Ted Williams, among others).

Negro League data, its limitations, and the process by which we compile and report it, are discussed here.

Negro League data may be downloaded here.
