Negro League Seasons
Retrosheet has compiled regular-season Negro League games for the following seasons.
Retrosheet has also compiled notable games which do not (necessarily) fit within a season for which Retrosheet has released data (although several of these games do fall within released seasons) but which are noteworthy or interesting enough that people might be interested in these games.
Because of differences in the quality of the data available for Negro League seasons vis-a-vis the American and National League, Retrosheet has decided that it will not present season totals for Negro League players. Instead, it will present game logs for players (and teams) which summarize all of the data which we have found. Player pages for Negro League games can be found here. This includes Negro League (and inter-racial) games played by players who also played in the American or National League.
For this project, Retrosheet is standing on the shoulders of giants. The hard work of finding, compiling, and publishing the statistics of Negro League players was done by a number of dedicated researchers to whom Retrosheet - and all baseball fans - owe a tremendous debt of gratitude. The list of researchers who were helpful to Retrosheet in its work so far, either directly or indirectly, includes, but is by no means limited to the following: Gary Ashwill, Ray Doswell, Leslie Heaphy, Kevin Johnson, Larry Lester, Todd Peterson, and Scott Simkus. Thank you all so much for all of your work on Negro League baseball and for your assistance to Retrosheet with this project.
Retrosheet is an all-volunteer organization. We could not and can not do what we have done and hope to do in the future without the help of volunteers. Volunteers who have helped with this project include, but, again, are not necessarily limited to, Javier Anderson, Mark Aubrey, Mike Cantor, Alan Cohen, Dean Esgrow, Jonathan Frankel, Mike Grahek, Larry Hayes, Dave Lamoureaux, Mark Pankin, David Roher, Dave Smith, Stuart Shiffman, Tom Stillman, Wes Tervo, Tom Thress, Wayne Townsend, Ted Turocy, Neal Williams, Mark Williamson, Jim Wohlenhaus, and Greg Zeis. Thank you all.
If you are interested in helping on this project, please contact Tom Thress (tthress--ATsign--retrosheet.org).
Thank you very much! We hope you enjoy the data here and we look forward to adding more data over time.
