The Biographical Encyclopedia of the Negro Baseball Leagues
From BR Bullpen
The Biographical Encyclopedia of the Negro Baseball Leagues contains information on every player who appeared on a top-flight black team in the days of the Negro Leagues, as well as other key individuals in those leagues and descriptions of each team. In some cases the data provided is minimal (last name, team, position) while better players get a couple pages detailing their demographic information, personality and career. The Encyclopedia was written by James Riley and first published in 1994.
