I’m thrilled to announce that we at Seamheads have launched the very first online Negro Leagues Database, powered by the Baseball Gauge. The site covers the Cuban Leagues from 1904-1912 and the Negro Leagues from 1916-1922. There are plans for adding more years in the future as the data is collected.
The database was created by amazing researchers such as Gary Ashwill and Scott Simkus. You won’t believe the amount of work that has been put it and the amount of knowledge these guys have on the subject. Check out their personal sites if you’re interested in learning more.
If you’re like me, as a baseball fan, you’ve always heard and read about players like Oscar Charleston, Smokey Joe Williams, Cristobal Torriente, Ben Taylor, and Bullet Joe Rogan. We now have the ability to look at their stats and compare them to their contemporaries.
