History: The Black Yankee Travelers were the early barnstorming version of the New York Black Yankees. The team was founded as the Harlem Black Bombers in 1931. Barnstorming was an important source of revenue for black clubs, as they could often earn more than from playing a regular league schedule, but the Depression years were particularly tough, as teams often had to play consecutive games hundreds of miles apart. The Black Yankees joined the Negro National League in 1936, and played through 1948, when MLB integration began to erode the viability of the Negro leagues.
