League: Metropolitan Baseball Association
History: The Metropolitan Baseball Association was the top semi-pro circuit in the New York City area, and included teams like Union City, the Brooklyn Bay Parkways, and the legendary Brooklyn Bushwicks. Because semi-pro ball operated independently from the organized baseball structure, major and minor league players could pick up a few extra bucks by playing under assumed names so as to not be in violation of their contracts. MBA clubs also regularly hosted games against Negro league teams at a time when organized baseball was still segregated.
