Negro League Statistics

Awesome. The excessively useful Seamheads.com has their first batch of Negro League statistics up, covering the years 1916 through 1922, and some Cuban Winter League stuff before that. There’s batting average, on-base percentage and all you’d expect, and then even wOBA and wins above replacement. It passes the sniff test, too, with Oscar Charleston — widely regarded as the greatest Negro Leagues player ever, and by some as the greatest baseball player ever — coming out as the greatest player in the database so far.
