East-West 75th Anniversary All-Star Game

The East–West All-Star Game was an annual game for Negro league baseball players and held toward the end of the season. The game was created by Gus Greenlee, owner of the Pittsburgh Crawfords. In 1933, he decided to match the Major League Baseball All-Star Game with Negro league version. Newspaper balloting was set up to allow the fans to choose the starting lineups for the first game, a tradition that continued through the end of the series in 1962.
