List of first black Major League Baseball players by team and date

Below is a list of the first black players in Major League Baseball by team and chronological order, since the abolition of the Baseball color line. During the 1880s, Moses Fleetwood Walker had played for Toledo of the American Association (his brother Welday Walker also played a few games with the club), and it was essentially against Fleetwood Walker that the line was originally drawn.

Note: Teams are not listed again if they move to a new city. Also, since the beginning of expansion in 1961, all expansion teams have been integrated from their first game, so those teams are not listed.
