Overview

The 1929 Negro National League consisted of seven teams. The league started play in late April and concluded in September. The Kansas City Monarchs dominated league play, winning both the first and second halves, as well as the league championship. On the other end was the Memphis Red Sox. Percentage-wise they were at the bottom of the standings.

The 1929 Memphis Red Sox, according to my research, ended up playing a total of 104 games, with a 35-64-5 (.361) record over all. They went 21-54-1 (.283) in the Negro National League and 14-10-4 (.571) against independent and Negro Southern League (NSL) teams.
