Joel Gray, Pittsburgh Pirates’ community outreach coordinator, presents this Black History Month initiative designed to help educate students about Negro League baseball.
Pittsburgh was a hub for Negro League baseball during the first half of the 20th century and the only city in the country that had two black professional teams -- the Homestead Grays and Pittsburgh Crawfords. Those teams featured stars such as Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige and Buck Leonard.
The free 1 p.m. presentation in Duda Hall Rooom 103 is sponsored by the Frederick Douglass Institute at Cal U and has been rescheduled after being postponed due to the wintry weather on Feb. 7.
