1907 (first REAL Negro League) plus the Cuban Winter Leagues of 1913/14 and 1914/15. Bruce Petway, Pete Hill, John Henry Lloyd, Home Run Johnson, Cristóbal Torriente, and José Méndez all now with even more career data available.
Contrary to popular belief, blackball teams playing in a ‘real’ league did not begin in 1920. In 1886, there was an attempt to start a 10 team “Southern Colored Base Ballist” league. In 1887, the National Colored Baseball League managed to play 13 league games before folding. The 1906 “ILIP League” (International League of Independent Professional Clubs) probably wouldn’t qualify as an actual league under a strict definition, but was more a loose assocation of teams like subsequent “Negro Leagues” in the 1908-1919 time period, plus it included two white teams. But in 1907, the National Association of Colored Professional Clubs of the United States and Cuba was a REAL league, and most likely can claim being the first real Negro Baseball League.
