Great post as always Paul! Your knowledge of Negro League players and history is a valuable resource. If its not too much trouble, could you provide me with a biblography of your work on this subject? Thank you Paul🙂👍⚾️

Thanks Jeff, I appreciate it. As for books, the place I'd start is "Shades of Glory: The Negro Leagues and the Story of African-American Baseball" by Lawrence D. Hogan, and "Only the Ball Was White" by Robert Peterson. There are also several books by John B. Holway, including "Black Giants" and "Blackball Stars: Negro League Pioneers." Individual biographies of some players are also really valuable in painting an overall picture of the Negro Leagues. "Willie Wells: 'El Diablo' of the Negro Leagues" by Bob Luke is pretty good, and so is Neil Lanctot's "Campy: The Two Lives of Roy Campanella." And, of course, Buck O'Neil's memoir "I Was Right on Time" is excellent. Lots and lots of others available, of course, but I'd start with those.
