Best Answer

The brothers Fleet and and Weldy Walker played for Toledo in the American Association, then considered a "Major League", in 1884. Of course, in the modern era, Jackie Robinson began his ten year Major League career with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947.

What was the reasoning for the Negro League?

The Negro League was a league founded by Ruth Foster. The Negro League let black people play baseball in their own league. The Negro League was the major league for black people. Most people do not believe this but the Negro League was rougher than the major league back around the 1900s. When Ruth Foster died the Negro League shut down. A few years later Gus Greenlee took over the Negro League. He was a manager of a team. He had the team with Sachel Paige on it. If you weren't aware he was the best Negro baseball player.
