100 years since the beginning of the Negro Leagues


Man, records and championships in baseball would have been so much different if Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige, Cool Papa Bell, Buck Leonard and Rube Foster had played for the Reds, Cubs, etc. Charlie Pride played in the Negro Leagues before becoming a country music singer.

Today, 3 ex presidents tipped their caps. Geez, does Trump even know the Negro Leagues existed?

Satchel Paige once said: "Cool Papa Bell was so fast that one time he hit a ground ball up the middle and it hit 'em in the head as he slid into 2nd."
