adventures in baseball archeology: the negro leagues, latin american baseball, j-ball, the minors, the 19th century, and other hidden, overlooked, or unknown corners of baseball history...with occasional forays into other sports
Thought I’d update the Negro National League standings for 1920-1924 I last posted a couple of years ago with a few scores I’ve found since then. No major changes. Again the 1923 NNL standings come from Patrick Rock, and the 1924 NNL and ECL are both preliminary versions, based mostly on the Defender, Courier, and Afro-American.
Compare with the old version, posted here. The years 1920, 1921, and 1922 are now based on thorough
research in newspapers from all league cities, while 1923 is still based on
Patrick Rock’s definitive work on that year.
As before, the second column of standings is from Clark and Lester’s Negro Leagues Book, and I think for the most part represent standings as published in contemporary newspapers.
