The Cincinnati Tigers were a professional Negro league baseball team based in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Tigers were founded in 1934 by DeHart Hubbard, the first African American to win an individual Olympic gold medal when he won the long jump during the 1924 Summer Olympics. In 1937, the Tigers joined the Negro American League in its inaugural season. Using Cincinnati Reds hand-me-down uniforms, the Tigers played at Crosley Field. The Tigers folded after the 1937 season.
