This presentation discusses how players of color became legends playing among themselves before they were officially re-admitted to Major League baseball. It also chronicles the pioneers on each big-league team beginning with Jackie Robinson and Larry Doby through Elijah ‘Pumpsie’ Green. It shows how some of them made the national pastime bigger and better than ever – how their emergence became one of the most fascinating chapters in baseball history.

The 2023 programs will continue to highlight how these experiences reflect American society and culture in general, to bring awareness to how the past is always with us - to teach us, and to provide inspiration and encouragement to those facing similar challenges today.

We are thankful to the Cuyahoga County Arts and Culture Council for funds to support our efforts. As a result all programs are free.

Donations to support the community and youth efforts of the Community Cup Classic Foundation are welcome .
