  • Negro League Awards

    In the latest Baseball Encyclopedia, there is a section about the Negro Leagues which shows standings for all years we have data and based on the stats we do have and their team's performance, picks MVPs, Pitcher of the Year Awards, and Rookie of the Year Awards. I think it would be of use to some on here for me to post those for you.

    i'm interested in seeing this new statistical effort which was just completed - anyone know when it will be published?

      My understanding is it won't be published for at least a year or two in anything resembling complete form. Perhaps we'll get bits and pieces of it to go with the inductions for the HOF in February.

        MVP Awards

        The awards listed start in 1910, so here they are, starting in 1910. In some years, projected MVPs are given for more than one league, so I tell you the league. The abbreviations used are NNL1 (Negro National League 1920-1931), ECL (Eastern Colored League), NSL (Negro Southern League), ANL (American Negro League), EWL (East-West League), NNL2 (Negro National League 1933-1948), NAL (Negro American League), and IND (independant teams of major league caliber). Here are the MVPs, 1910-1950:

            Chris,

            Can you give me a little more on 1) the Encyclopedia (publisher, editor, edition) and 2) who made these selections?

              They're from The 2005 ESPN Baseball Encyclopedia, which is basically a regular baseball encyclopedia with a few additional sections, including one about the Negro Leagues. It is the 2nd edition of the reference, published by Sterling Publishing Co. Inc. (New York). Editors are Pete Palmer and Gary Gillette. It is not really clear as to who exactly is making the selections, but the Negro Leagues section in the book, as is said in the beginning, is mainly the work of James Riley so it's probably him who's selecting the awards.

                Thanks. I may want to reference these picks, and without the info you've provided, I couldn't have.

                        Number of years in Negro League All-Star game, 1933-1950

                        Notes: the game started in 1933, so guys from before that time could well have been selected previously if the game had existed. I am only listing guys on the teams a minimum of three years. Some years they had two games, but I am counting years and not games.

                        Alphabetical listing
