Major league baseball final standings

Negro leagues final standings

All Negro leagues standings below are per Seamheads.[1]

Negro National League final standings

This was the eleventh of twelve seasons of the original Negro National League. This was the sixth split-season and fifth season in which a playoff was held to determine the pennant, for which the first half leader would be matched against the second half winner. St. Louis won the first half while Detroit won the second half. As such, they met for a best-of-seven Championship Series. The playoff was held September 13–22 and would see St. Louis would win the series in seven games to win their second pennant, their second ever in three years.[1]

East (independent teams) final standings

A loose confederation of teams were gathered in the East to compete with the West, however East teams did not organize a formal league as the West did.[1]

Negro league postseason

By 1930, there had been no organized league for East Coast baseball in the Negro leagues (owing to the dissolution of the Eastern Colored League in 1928 and American Negro League in 1929). The remaining teams from the ANL and ECL played independent ball together, but they also played against teams from the Midwest. As such, the Homestead Grays challenged two teams from the NNL two distinct Series that were held over various stadiums and dates. The Grays challenged the St. Louis Stars in St. Louis on April 19 and April 22 and won twice. They challenged the Detroit Stars to four games held from August 21 to August 28 (two in Akron and two in Detroit), which Homestead won three. On August 30–September 3, they challenged the Stars to five games (all in St. Louis), and the Stars won four of five. At any rate, the independent East teams then had an "East Coast Championship Series", which matched the Grays and the New York Lincoln Giants (in that same month, the Negro National League had their Championship Series), with ten games spread out over Pittsburgh, New York, and Philadelphia.[2]

  • 1930 East Coast Championship Series: Homestead Grays over New York Lincoln Giants, 6–4
  • 1930 Negro National League Championship Series: St. Louis Stars over Detroit Stars, 4–3
