Negro Southern League

From BR Bullpen

Jump to: navigation, search

Negro Leagues in the south were far less organized and lucrative than those in the north due to Jim Crow legislation. Tom Wilson organized the Negro Southern League in 1920. It reached its peak in 1932 when it was the only Negro league to complete the year after the East-West League folded in mid-summer. Many of the teams left the league in later years, seeking the brighter pastures of the Negro American League.
