The Daily Blackness: MLB is correcting history by officially elevating the Negro Leagues to “Major League” status.

The Daily Blackness: MLB is correcting history by officially elevating the Negro Leagues to “Major League” status.

“All of us who love baseball have long known that the Negro Leagues produced many of our game’s best players, innovations and triumphs against a backdrop of injustice,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “We are now grateful to count the players of the Negro Leagues where they belong: as Major Leaguers within the official historical record.”

The Negro leagues were United States professional baseball leagues comprising teams of African Americans and, to a lesser extent, Latin Americans. The term may be used broadly to include professional black teams outside the leagues and it may be used narrowly for the seven relatively successful leagues beginning in 1920 that are sometimes termed “Negro Major Leagues”.

Today, December 16, 2020, Major League Baseball announced  it would recognize the Negro Leagues as major leagues, and recognize players and statistics from 3,400 players from 1920 to 1948.
