In Response To: Re: Negro Baseball - Texas ()
I may be a bit tardy on this one but the Minneola Black Spiders appear to have largely been a barnstorming baseball team loosely based out of Minneola. In 1932, they played from about August 1st on as the Mason City (Iowa) Black Bats due to a salary dispute.
I have them traveling into the Midwest as the Texas Black Spiders in 1932 through 1936. I have yet to start my newspaper pulls in 1937 on in Minnesota and Northern Iowa. The Dallas Morning News had an article in 1990 that said they played until at least 1938.
