Detroit Stars
Play: 15 seasons, 1920-33, 1937

The talented Detroit Stars played out of historic Mack Park until it burned in 1929, and then in Hamtramack Stadium.

During the 1940s, many Negro League games were played in Tigers’ Briggs Stadium. The Stars were one of the original members of the Negro National League in 1920.

They spotlighted one of the great home run hitters in baseball history, Norman "Turkey" Stearnes. Another star was catcher Bruce Petway who twice threw out Ty Cobb attempting to steal bases in a Cuban game. The notorious streak hitter Pete Hill was on the squad in 1919.
