History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

The 1932 Louisville Black Caps were one of several teams to move over to the Negro Southern League when the Negro National League collapsed, helping give it its status as a major leaguer. It would be Louisville's last year, though, and not a very good one.

Box scores have only been found for 16 of their 40 games (as of 2/19/2021). In those games, RF/Mgr Jim Brown was 11 for 16 with a double, triple, nine runs and eight RBI in the seven contests he played in at age 40, while 2B Bob Miller went 14 for 27 with 3 doubles, 8 runs and 9 RBI. The only players to appear in all 16 box scores are 3B Felton Snow (.271/.317/.424, 130 OPS+) and 1B Granville Lyons (.230/.254/.328, 80 OPS+). Spoon Carter (1-3, 3.00, 121 ERA+) and Dusty Rhodes (1-2, 4.91, 74 ERA+) are the only hurlers to appear in at least four of those 16 games. A young Andy Porter was 2-0 with a 3.22 ERA (122 ERA+) in three documented starts.
