Negro Leagues Data Extended to 1923

Complete Negro Leagues Data now from 1908 thru 1923, plus Cuban Leagues back to 1902-03.  1907 and 1924 coming soon.

In the NNL’s first season, the club owned by the league president, Rube Foster, dominated and easily won the pennant.  The ECL followed the same pattern, with league president Ed Bolden’s Hilldale Club winning nearly twice as many games as the second-place team.  Led by player-manager John Henry Lloyd (.367), catcher and batting champ Biz Mackey (.423), center fielder George Johnson (who topped the league with 8 home runs and 46 RBI) and young lefty James “Nip” Winters (10-3, 2.36), Hilldale easily brushed aside all opposition.  The only blight on their season was the failure of the two leagues to agree to a World Series, so the “Darby Daisies” didn’t get the chance to test themselves against the NNL champion Kansas City Monarchs.

It is SO amazing that we can just look up NeL stats now, whenever we want.
Every time I go by the I-505 exit for REDDING / WINTERS I think, "That's a pretty good doubleheader, right there."
