Artistic Tees T-Shirts


Segregated baseball lasted sixty years, from 1887 when Adrian Cap Anson, the Babe Ruth of his day, tried to order a black opponent off the field, until 1947 when Jackie Robinson took his place in the infield at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. During that time, many of the most gifted players ever to grace a baseball diamond pitched, hit, and ran their way into baseball immortality, with much of America unaware of their existence.

Some of these great players–men like Satchel Paige, Roy Campanella, and later, Henry Aaron–having benefited from Robinson’s historic move to the big leagues, followed him there. However, many other black standouts, including Josh Gibson, John Henry Lloyd, Smoky Joe Williams, James Thomas Cool Papa Bell, and Oscar Charleston missed out.
