In 1933, the struggling Columbus Blue Birds of the Negro National League dropped out and were replaced by the Cleveland Giants, who were practically the same team, and played just one game before dropping out as well. Overall the club went 22-28 and did not continue after the year. Bingo DeMoss managed the team, which included Bill Byrd (5-6), Frog Redus (.325), SS Leroy Morney (.467) and OF Jabbo Andrews. Andrews was third in the NNL with 13 homers and third with a .412 average. Morney split the year with the Baltimore Black Sox and led the circuit in batting average.
