A Good Source for the Negro Leagues

Just a short note today to let you know about an interesting site. In studying Negro League baseball and black baseball in general, there are a lot of good places to go on the net. I’d like to think this is one of them. But I also know that there are places for more detailed, especially statistically detailed, info. So for my last post on black baseball for Black History Month, I’d like to tell you about one.

One of the very best places to go is seamheads.com. Seamheads is a site dedicated to baseball in general, but it has a wonderful subset on the Negro Leagues. When you click on Seamheads, you’ll see, in the upper right, a “Negro Leagues Database”. Clicking on that will send you to their Negro Leagues area. There you’ll find a blog on the Negro Leagues and links to various bits of info on the players and teams. The player info and league info is in pretty good shape from 1896 through 1936 (always remembering that the statistical information is sketchy). Beyond that the information is sparse. I’ve been unable to find anything indicating they are planning to move forward into the 1940s with their findings, but presume that to be the case.

If you’re at all interested in the Negro Leagues, Seamheads.com is a nice place to find information. I suggest you check it out. You can simply type seamheads on Google and you’ll get to it easily. Worth taking the time.
