“A group of eight midwestern team owners meets at the Kansas City YMCA to organize the Negro National League, which will become one of the most successful ventures of its kind. Rube Foster, the owner and manager of the American Giants, will become president of the new circuit, leading to accusations of favoritism, which appear especially true when the schedule had Chicago play a disproportionate number of games at home.”
Big day as this was the first Negro league to have sustainablity. Admittedly I didn’t realize much about the Negro Leagues history besides the fact they existed during the segregation era. But as far as the founding and also the multiple leagues that comprised this enterprise, looking into this piece of history taught me a thing or two. That’s never bad.
