Toledo Tigers

From Ohio History Central

The Toledo Tigers was a professional African American baseball team.

During the late 1800s and the early 1900s, professional baseball teams and leagues were segregated. African Americans did not play on teams with white players. White teams and black teams did not play in the same professional leagues. As a result of this segregation, there were separate leagues and teams for whites and blacks in professional baseball's early decades.

The Toledo Tigers played its home games in Toledo, Ohio. The team played in the Negro National League. The Toledo Tigers played for only part of the 1932 season before disbanding.
