Long Live Their Legacy: A Celebration of Negro League Baseball

Duda Hall

623 3rd St
California, PA 15419
United States

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.
