 SBF Glossary: A to AAZN
In 1950, with the AAFC Yankees defunct and many of the players distributed by draft to other NFL teams, the San Francisco Forty-Niners played their first regular season game in the NFL on September 17 -- a 21-17 loss to the New York Yanks.
For 1946-1948, there were two AAFC teams in the five boroughs: the New York Yankees and the sorry Brooklyn Dodgers.
For 1949, AAFC Dodgers merged with the stronger local AAFC team to become the Brooklyn-New York Yankees, the same year that the NFL's Boston Yanks moved and became the New York Bulldogs.

 Ben Chapman (baseball player) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although he made his name as a fast, ferocious and hard-nosed player with the New York Yankees and four other American League teams from 1930-41, that reputation was eclipsed by the controversial role he played in 1947, as manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, opposing the presence of Jackie Robinson on a big league team.
The team improved somewhat through the end of 1945, and climbed to fifth place in 1946, the first year of the postwar baseball boom and the last season in which the color line was in force.
Chapman, who batted and threw righthanded, was a teammate of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Bill Dickey and other Hall of Famers on the Yankees from 1930 through the middle of 1936.

The PCL thus finds itself with teams in Oklahoma, New Orleans, Nashville, Memphis, Omaha, Des Moines and Colorado Springs, which seem far removed from the palm trees and swimming pools around which the original league was formed.
It was not uncommon for PCL teams to play 200 games in a season.
