About This File

My advice is to download the generic mod enabler.This way u do not have to replace any files.Make a negro league folder

inside the mod enabler then when u start the enabler then just enabel that folder and the unis will show in game.Turn off

the enabler when u want to revert back to the originals or choose another modded folder

u can get the enabler here http://www.users.on....ucts-jsgme.html

If u dont want to use the enabler then u have to unzip the files and add them to the main 2k folder.And the files will replace the originals,so this is when

u will want to have a copy of the original somewhere else,in case u need to put the originals back in game.

U may notice that the unis during daylight games may have a weird look.From what im told this is because of how 2k

did their daylight shading.

so theres not much i can do about it unless someone figures a way to by pass this.

Buffalo Blues,Chicago Wales,Kansas City Packers,Pittsburgh Rebels(stogies) and St louis Terriers

History of the Federal League

The federal league was known as the 3rd major league.The league started as an independent minor league in 1912

as the Columbia League, but changed its name to the Federal League at the start of the 1913 season, playing

as what would now be known as an "independent" minor league, but was at that time thought of as an "outlaw"

minor league

In order for the Federal League to succeed, it needed Big League players. Walter Johnson signed a three year

contract with the Chicago team, but the Senators' Clark Griffith went personally to Johnson's home in Kansas

and made a successful counter-offer.[2] Major League players that jumped to the Federal League included

Bill McKechnie, Claude Hendrix, Jack Quinn, Russell Ford, Tom Seaton, Doc Crandall, Al Bridwell, Hy Myers

and Hal Chase. The Federal League also recruited Big League names to manage the new teams. Joe Tinker managed

the Chicago team, Mordecai Brown managed the St. Louis team and Bill Bradley managed the Brooklyn team.

During the 1914-15 offseason, Federal League owners brought an antitrust lawsuit against the American and

National Leagues. The lawsuit ended up in the court of Federal Judge (and future Commissioner of Baseball)

Kenesaw Mountain Landis, who allowed the case to languish while he urged both sides to negotiate. Swift action

might have made a difference, but without the lawsuit going forward, the Federals found themselves in deepening

financial straits

After the 1915 season the owners of the American and National Leagues bought out half of the owners (Pittsburgh,

Newark, Buffalo, and Brooklyn) of the Federal League teams. Two Federal League owners were allowed to buy struggling

franchises in the established leagues: Phil Ball, owner of the St. Louis Terriers, was allowed to buy the St. Louis

Browns of the AL, and Charles Weeghman, owner of the Chicago Whales, bought the Chicago Cubs. Both owners merged

their teams into the established ones. The Kansas City franchise had been declared bankrupt and taken over by the

league office after the close of the regular season, and the Baltimore owners rejected the offer made to them. They

had sought to buy and move an existing franchise to their city, but were rebuffed, and sued unsuccessfully.
