Baseball in the 1930's

Not only did Majors flourish, the Negro Leagues did aswell. The Negro League was like Major League baseball, but for black people, since in the 1930s segregation was still present. To many people's surprise the Nergro League survived not only segregation, but the Great Depression too. People like Josh Gibson, and Satchel Paige (baseball's best pitcher) really made the Negro Leagues exciting.

Baseball in the 1930s took place during the Great Depression therefore attendance would be down, but none of the franchises moved or folded because of the Great Depression. What kept baseball alive was the stars on the field, stars like Babe Ruth who hit over 40 home runs in a season. Even if it was in troubled times baseball flourished in the 1930s.

Baseball in the 1930s had the name "The Golden Age of Baseball." This name was earned thanks to the Negro Leagues, and the Major Leagues. Although the players didn't do all of the work, The Baseball Hall of Fame was made in the 1930s which really got fans excited.
