The Cleveland Giants were a Negro Leagues baseball team. The team played only one year, 1933. Their home games were contested at Cleveland's Luna Bowl in Luna Park.

In 1933, the struggling Columbus Blue Birds of the Negro National League dropped out and were replaced by the Cleveland Giants, which was practically the same team. Overall the club went 22-28 and did not continue after the year. Bingo DeMoss managed the team, which included Bill Byrd (5-6), Frog Redus (.325), SS Leroy Morney (.467) and OF Jabbo Andrews. Andrews was third in the NNL with 13 homers and third with a .412 average. Morney split the year with the Baltimore Black Sox and led the circuit in batting average.
