The baseball color line, sometimes called the "Gentleman's Agreement", was the policy, unwritten for nearly its entire duration, which excluded African Americans and other players of African descent from organized baseball in the United States before 1947. As a result, various Negro Leagues were formed, which featured those players not allowed to participate in the major or minor leagues. The color line applied specifically to players with African descent. Native Americans, native Hawaiians, and Hispanic players of European, indigenous or mixed European-native origin were not excluded by it.
