In a Non-league format:
One or two "name" headliners from either league would arrange barnstorming tours where they would play each other during the winter, often multiple times over the course of a several week period. The barnstorming exhibitions or 'all-star' games were not limited to Negro Leagues vs. Major Leagues; often it was the headliners playing the local semi-pro team, or two teams playing each other. Many stars including Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig took part in a barnstorming tour to Japan in 1934. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnstorm_(athletics)
Origins and main uses of "barnstorming" is covered also in question #53230.
In a League format:
The Mexican League in the 1940's tried to corner talent by hiring both Negro League and Major League players, but it soon fizzled, hurt in no small part (as was the Negro Leagues) by the integration of the Major Leagues http://www.baseballhistorian.com/mexico_baseball.cfm

Actually "barnstorming" was the specific word I was looking for.
This quiz is based on the "Justice League" heroes from the first two seasons of "Justice League" (not the unlimited league). The questions are about all the characters and episodes that were present in those two seasons.
