The Negro Leagues have a multifaceted history; just as there was no single inventor of baseball, there is no single origin for the Negro Leagues. It is also necessary to note that the history of the Negro Leagues is not the same as that of black baseball; there was black baseball before the formation of leagues, and the league structure underwent a number of iterations. This examination begins by investigating black baseball before the advent of the Negro Leagues, transitioning into an exploration of the first black teams and professional baseball. The first documented game took place on November 15, 1859, between the Weeksville Unknowns and the Henson Club of Jamaica (in Queens).

Another used bookstore pickup, A Complete History Of The Negro Leagues would have been a decent pickup even if I’d paid full price for it. What I like most is that author Mark Ribowsky treats the subject, and by extension, the reading audience, with respect. It does not focus on the exploits of Cool Papa Bell jumping into bed before the light out, it does not focus on Satchel Paige’s womanizing exploits, nor does it highlight exaggerated statistics without providing proper context. If you are a baseball fan, no matter what level of play, this is a book you need to read. And In exhaustive detail, Mark Ribowsky has written a history of blackball, also known as The Negro Leagues. What I learned is that politics, power struggles, and rascsim went hand in hand to deny talented players their rightful place in professional baseball.

Baseball evolved from the British game of rounders, and is a cousin to cricket in that it also involves two teams that alternate on defense and offense and involve throwing a ball to a batsman who attempts to "bat" it away and run safely to a base. The first documentation of base ball is in 1838, but there are references to a game of base ball going back to the late 1700s. Latin American players also played in the Negro Leagues, and the league played in many of the same stadiums as the majors and had a devoted following. Professional baseball leagues formed over the years in the Netherlands (1922), Australia (1934), Japan (1936), Puerto Rico (1938), Venezuela (1945), Mexico (1945), Italy (1948) and the Dominican Republic (1951), Korea (1982), Taiwan (1990) and China (2003). The first international tournament was held in 1938, called the Baseball World Cup, which is played to this day.
This past week I started working on a thread to look at the history of the Negro Leagues in the USA. Interesting stuff. This past week I started working on a thread to look at the history of the Negro Leagues in the USA. Just as one might expect, I found that African-Americans have been playing the game from its earliest. Hopefully, this thread will be a place one might gain useful information, valuable insights, or a momentary smile to break the tension of the day. To get the ball rolling I will go ahead and put up 2 or 3 of the first posts following this one. I will be putting up a few more during the next few weeks
