Description

This presentation will discuss the annual assembly of the best Black and Latino baseball players, who were the equals of their White counterparts in Major League baseball. The East-West All-Star Classics ranked among Black America’s favorite sporting events attracting tens of thousands of fans each season. Most games were held at Chicago’s Comiskey Park; but New York City, Washington, DC and Cleveland, Ohio also hosted the contests sometimes in a given season as a second All-Star game.
