This Day in Baseball: The Negro National League

By Precious Sanders @pdsanders99

A group of team owners met at the YMCA in Kansas City on February 13, 1920.  Led by Rube Foster, owner and manager of the Chicago American Giants, the meeting resulted in the organization of the Negro National League.  The NNL was the first African-American baseball league to become stable enough to last more than one season.
