question here, being as specific as possible::I am working on my Senior
Seminar in history this term, and frantically trying to find sources,
especially primary sources. My topic has to do with Negro League Baseball,
specifically with the Negro League Players fighting for pensions, and the
inequality involved in delaying the pensions. etc. As you can see It's not a
concrete topic, but a direction. Any help would be much appreciated, my
professor Dr. Olszowka said that I should come see the Reference library
here at Mercyhurst.

Answer

Hi Chris!

I sent you an article and I will continue looking,  However, see below link for books we have on the Negro Baseball League.  I am sure some of them will mention pension problems.

Also, below is an article that talks about where to find information from different websites on Negro Baseball league

I found the best results looking in the database  Newspapers Source Plus and putting in the key words:  "negro baseball league" and pension  Make sure you put quotes around "negro baseball league"  to keep the words together.  

Let me know if I can be any further help.
