Yesterday, #May2 marked the anniversary of the first game played by the Negro National Baseball League. The game was held in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1920. The Negro League originally consisted of eight teams.
The original eight Negro teams were: Chicago American Giants, Chicago Giants, Cuban Stars, Dayton Marcos, Detroit Stars, Kansas City Monarchs, Indianapolis ABCs, and the St. Louis Giants.
