There must have been a Negro League team from Lake Woebegon, where all the players are above average.

A lot of this starts with teams sending in reports of victories but not of losses, and either the league office or the reporting newspapers are too lazy to keep close track.
According to the standings listed, the NNL had an overall percentage of .507. Has anyone ever seen one of these were the total league W-L was UNDER .500?

You know, I'm not sure I've ever seen Negro League standings (published at the time) that actually balanced.

and unless my math is off the W/L's don't balance, which is something you DO often see when Negro League standings are found.
