Negro American League (1937)

The Cincinnati Tigers were a professional baseball team based in Cincinnati, Ohio, which played in the Negro Leagues. The Tigers were founded in 1934 by William DeHart Hubbard, the first black to win an individual Olympic gold medal when he won the long jump during the 1924 Summer Olympics. In 1937, the Tigers joined the Negro American League in its inaugural season. Using Cincinnati Reds hand-me-down uniforms, the Tigers played at Crosley Field, often outdrawing the Reds. The Tigers folded after the 1937 season.
