Negro League data is not complete. Research is still ongoing and we’ll continue to publish updates as more information becomes available. More about data coverage

Players listed either lost their rookie status as considered by modern standards (< 130 AB, 50 IP or 45 pre-Sept 1 days of service to start season) in this season or if you are looking at the 2021 rookies page then they have not lost their rookie status and are still active professionals.

Note that there are special cases with regards to rookie status, so please let us know if you find a listing you believe to be in error.
