As Jackie Robinson began making his mark in the Major Leagues, many Negro League stars were making their cases for future promotion. The Homestead Grays’ Luke Easter would soon be a Cleveland Indian, but this year he led the Negro Leagues with 35 HR, one more than Monte Irvin, soon to be a New York Giant.
In all, you will re-enact the greatness of nine future Hall of Famers (such as Irvin and Kansas City’s Willard Brown, who posted a .991 OPS), 13 others included in Strat-O-Matic’s Negro League Stars set and such future Major Leaguers as Hank Thompson (.979 OPS).
In stats adjusted for a 154-game schedule, the New York Cubans (98-56) were the best in the National League, though Newark, Baltimore and Homestead can threaten in a replay. In the American League, the Cleveland Buckeyes (96-58) were tops, but Birmingham and Kansas City can challenge. “With so many familiar players, this is an addictive season to replay,” say the developers of Strat-O-Matic’s Negro League re-creations.
