"The process didn't work very well. So. We KINDA WE KINDA doubled. The number of black baseball figures in the hall of fame in. One ear. Let student. I'm glad I'm glad I ask you that question then, and but also to it's also heartening to seem sense. Obviously. The the Negro League fame in Kansas City. which you know, can certainly in its own way right some wrongs as well as well as perhaps even go deeper. Into a more of the the the detail I guess of some of the. Of these players that don't for whatever reasons don't sort of make sort of the grand hall for whatever reasons all right? Here's my my last sort of question and I'm sorry I'm waiting till the end of it of this conversation kind of. Curiosity to me. Is and I I get a sense now as businessman. Maybe perhaps why this was the case. Explained to me this for lack of a better term adopted home of Washington DC because I think a lot of people who come across the homestead grays. For the first time, don't necessarily understand it. Being sort of a Pittsburgh regional domiciled kind of club, they may have become aware of it because of their doings in play, and the writings about it in Washington DC I don't. I don't get where that comes from during the war, Washington black population boom because. The federal government was providing. All kinds was growing during the war needed employees, and it was. Essentially non discriminatory. Probably not entirely, but mostly and African. Americans went there for jobs were good jobs. They were government jobs. Now. You have people who do have money to buy tickets. the major league owners. WHO! who own their own parks? which is basically all of them? Love to rent those parks when days and their teams weren't playing, gotTa Pay. You gotta pay the Electric Bill. The water bill the debt service whatever. And, even if there's nothing going on, but somebody out there mowing the grass, so. They love to rent out their parks to other sporting. Opportunities in Negro League Baseball was one of them Calvin Clark Griffith rather was. Happy to do this. Posey seize. The opportunity is only two hundred fifty miles from. Pittsburgh to DC, and you know these near leakers. Some one of them once told me I got so used to sleeping on a bus and we stop at a hotel. We couldn't sleep. We'd have to walk the streets all night because we couldn't sleep in a bed during the season, so you play a game at Forbes field in Pittsburgh on Saturday at hop on the bus. You're driving. You're driving during the night and end up in Washington DC in the morning. Get ready and play like a double header and grip stadium. In DC they did amazingly well it just. It was a real. Money maker you know also of course you were. You were. Publicizing Black Baseball place where. The activities of blacks got covered, so they were in the look they Washington papers and You know of course. They were the grays. They were always successful. That's that's how that came. About is just again. Just she's an opportunity and took it just at the right time. Why not move outright was there still enough? Money to be made within the Pittsburgh homestead region to. Separate it between two teams and maybe dilute. The. Black population in Pittsburgh was not in a growth mode at that point, and I'm not sure what to be honest with you, but you look at the census data and it clearly wasn't so. While? They were successful in Pittsburgh. It is sort of leveled off. But here you had thought not far away by meagerly travels bus travel standards here. You had this potential gold mine, and and actually the first couple of years. It wasn't all that successful. It was okay but nothing that probably justified. All of this disruption. But then. It got better they got. They got a better pr man, also they persuaded. The Kansas City monarchs to come and play several times. Of course they had Satchel page on their roster when page whenever paged pitched. At these neutral park, Major League parts attendance would like Double Negro League. Attendance would like double. And so page came and pitched a few games and attendance went through the roof. Again they they hired a guy named Art Carter. who was a sports writer for the Baltimore Afro American. To be their PR, Guy and Carter was very savvy. He courted the upper class. the doctors, the lawyers, a higher government middle level government officials with tickets made him got him convinced that it wasn't looking down. Being looked down upon to go to a ball game. and. They call him out influencers. These these people became influencers. Then the fans started, and the fans follow them. So Yeah the first couple of years it didn't and they almost gave up on it, but then. They. Did you know again? Cast about and hit on the right formula, and it worked like crazy satchwell page being a big part of it. All right well. Here's here's my last question and I'll let you promote Gimme a sense, then sort of looking, and obviously you know the decline of the the the Negro Leagues, the integration of Baseball and obviously sort of swept the grace to among all the other sort of. Successes by that time in the late forties early fifties. Give me a sense of what you. Take away from. The legacy I know it's sort of off. Houston thrown around word, but of not only Posey, but also the grays and they're sort of. I don't know what they meant not only to Negro League baseball, but baseball generally because it seems like there was some. And again I throw this term around, but I think it's it's apt is is there's some pioneering going on in the story? Yes, there is it's. Caves they've set the stage. They set the stage for integration really because. By the late thirties, the you know everybody including white sports some way. Writers Jimmy Powers in New, York and Hayward Broun. We're saying. Why aren't you guys the majors we've seen these guys play their great. Why aren't they into majors? So that and the wartime you know blacks were blacks were in the army. Black were in the navy. Blacks were in the Air Force Tuskegee airman. All of that. Time the war is over. Truman officially desegregated the military. And it's like well. Now is the time. For sure he was secretly out in front of the whole thing was scouting and evaluating black players and. Integration happened in forty six and forty seven to start with, and then by fifty. It was pretty. You know at least most teams had least these black player. I guess that's widespread. And it was like pulling the plug on Negro Leagues Because Wow, we can go see Jackie Robinson. We can go see him as we can see Roy Campanella. Don Newcombe. In the real big leagues and.

"Hard to say for their sponsorship and bring our attention. To this book by Dan Diane Shaw, he says a farewell to arms, legs and Jock straps. I know you'll enjoy the free sample and I know you'll enjoy the book. Try it out, and as they say, you'll be glad you did all right back to our conversation Erica's. Seems like we're getting a sense of of Posey sort of idea that there's there's money to be made. There's there's a business so to speak in this, but I'm also really curious as to. It seems like it's a pretty successful enterprise, if not daunting in terms of travel and getting all the players he needs and being on the move all the time. I? Guess the flirtations as the only word I can come up with right now of quote Unquote League play, and there seemed to be a couple of different starting points for that one in I guess it was nineteen twenty nine. There's an interesting year to circle. Right with this quote. Unquote American Negro League again. With this East West League thing in thirty two. So I. Give me a sense of maybe why and what these? Formative leaks were and why maybe the attraction? You had the second. The first rupe roster in Chicago, founded and others founded the first Negro National League and Nineteen Twenty which is primarily mid, western basically. Did in nineteen, twenty, three the eastern Colored League. Started in Along the eastern seaboard, roughly from our basically from New York City. Down to Baltimore. And some places in between. Posey Had Opportunities to join both leagues and. This is what I HIS WHO so canny! I mean he he would go against the grain. If you thought it would work. He resisted joining. Two Leagues for a couple of reasons. One of which was if you didn't belong to the League's. He could Without real impunity. Read their rosters signed the best players and degrades made money. He said this is probably true. At the Graz made money every year until the depression There is no overarching commissioner or czar or judge, Landis or whatever of black baseball. And you can go shopping for players, and if you're in the league, there was there were a lot of restrictions, but if you weren't in the League. You can entice good talent. Away from somebody who was in the league. It wasn't a whole lot. They could do about it. They could refuse to play you, but then the greys were such a good draw. They probably wouldn't do that either. He also marketed his Pittsburgh area. The Eastern League stopped short of Pittsburgh to Western. League stopped Short Pittsburgh but the two leagues would play. Exhibition Games if you will with each other and he, he said. Hey, you're coming back. East to West West to east wants to stop in Pittsburgh and play the grace. For a day, and then move on, and that worked, that worked pretty well to. He tried to get a formal arrangement, but That didn't really work out, but in but. He started to play Negro Degrade, started to play Negro. League teams by picking them up as they pass through western Pennsylvania and route to either Chicago say or Philadelphia whatever. So there was so so he was. On the. Outskirts on the fringes of league baseball, but he refused to get involved until nineteen twenty nine. When he when he put to graze in the. In the American Negro League and by that point we think of. We think of the depression and you know starting with the Wall Street crash. You Know Tober but what? What really was happening? which there was a real decline in American manufacturing starting by Nineteen Twenty, seven. I mean. The depression. Largely started because. Manufacturer just making too much in the. Warehouses were full of refrigerators and. Furniture and everything else that people. We're making more than people could buy so. Manufacturing jobs at the tail off two or three years before the so-called beginning data the depression that affected black wage earners. You know they. They stay had been most recently hired generally speaking. In manufacturing and they held lower paid positions. You know what they say. Last, in first out, so unemployment started to grow in the black community. And the more unemployed there are the fewer baseball tickets are. GonNa be sold? And the. Pittsburgh was very industrially based, and it's just hurting the white teams to what the white semi pro team started to go out of existence because they're sponsors could no longer. Afford to fund them and. I think he looked around and saw the. His base, which is the regional semi pro base money base was starting to disintegrate, and so he hopped into league. And from then on, if there was a league to grays, we're probably in it. He just looked he just. He looked around the land. They financial landscape saw that he. His reasons for avoiding the League's. We're no longer paramount, so they joined the League, and of course they were more than welcome because they were always a good draw. Right, that's actually but that obviously that that version of the American Negro League was literally a one year wonder, and obviously now in a much more broadly depressed that nation and economics, and all that stuff beyond the the the lead in you're describing prior to the actual crash, and all the obviousness of it I. Guess in Twenty Nine so I mean. Now I'm really interested in so okay I. I get the idea that perhaps there might be sort of strength in numbers, and maybe there's more of a financially advantageous rationale sort of be within something, a bit more structured, and obviously that all sort of goes to Helena handbasket by the end of this one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine ninth season had. How does he I guess? Go back to being an independent team and fun for a long I. Guess for a couple more years because. That seems to also lead him to the conclusion of of maybe going back to the league structure again a few years later, but albeit maybe with him. I don't know having designs on how to maybe set one up. Well the the Negro National League folded in nineteen thirty, two, the eastern Colored League and the American National League and already gone by the boards. Except for the Negro Southern League which you're sort of. Always considered to be a minor league, but in thirty two. It was like the last man standing, so they were a major league even. Just because they were there. So he actually had very good independent teams in thirty and thirty one, and in thirty two. He made what I'd have to say. Is His only really dumb? Decision he started. He started a league in the depths of the depression called the East West League. He controlled two teams outright in it of the six, and probably had a lot to say of the management of the team in Cleveland because it was. Run by one of his old basketball, but he's from Pittsburgh. Who told everybody? No, this is my money. This is my money. I'm not sure anybody believed him so posey control literally controlled somewhere between a third to a half of the league. And it didn't work by July. Was Out of business. Why why do you think didn't it work was largely the for all the other reasons that other leagues were not surviving frankly obviously other worst time in the world to start a new baseball league. Not, even the white majors are doing well in nineteen thirty two. No was doing well I. Have No idea why did this?.

I don't know codification or investment or focus, perhaps on perhaps building out basketball as much as their seats to be efforts to do so in. Baseball around. They're thinking I. Think in the end. Except for certain places like. Big Metropolitan Areas. New York City Chicago. There just wasn't enough money in it, not enough fans you also had. That's just is true today. L. in so so-called indoor sports, basketball and hockey up to find a place to play. Pretty easy, not I mean not totally easy, but it's fairly easy to find a ball field. or or a football, field or park that would accommodate both football and baseball season, but you gotta find a gymnasium. And that became that became a problem because it's the blacks couldn't play. Just anywhere, no Madison Square Garden for them. So finding a finding a venue was difficulty the The Wendy's had had had dibs on a good location for many years there in the mid twenties. They lost it not no fault of their own the It was a building Owned by the. Labor Council in Pittsburgh, the second floor was the ballroom, and of course you played basketball anywhere where you could play in an open space those days. So ended Labor Council sold the building and they lost their lost their. Basketball floor. It was it was difficult. And this is true White Pass of light basketball to you know, there were regional white leagues. You Know Twenties and thirties and they all. Pretty much all day out in the end. We think the NBA is rory onto the scene. In the forties, but it it. It was built upon. Financially unsustainable predecessors to at least. Planted the seed that there could be professional basketball league. So they're just the money. Just wasn't there if he was, they were losing money, and so a lot of the other teams and teams were folding, and he just he turned the basketball team into a local attraction by about nineteen twenty six, David. He would he would. Get, some of the better Pittsburgh Platt Bat black players, and in fact if we someplace that his some of his baseball players could make a little money and stay in shape in the offseason, but after that they were strictly. A local attraction. And a lot of obviously a lot of the early basketball days certainly tied to companies, corporations and You know sort of. Things to keep. You know the more athletically inclined. Occupied during the off hours, so to speak and but Again. That's very interesting, so why though and how perhaps does? Cumberland Posey sort of get into the baseball thing because it seems like he was kind of playing and door tinkering around if you will. On the baseball side as well around this time, and then makes the full leap to it if you will, I'm just curious that Jim a emanates. He became a player outfielder. Somebody professional team called home sold the homestead grays. In nineteen ten or nineteen eleven, and he was just a player but he was, he was pretty good. and The team was pretty popular, and they had this particular thing. It was a it was a part time thing. Everybody had a day job. And played. After work on weekends, weekends have when you really major money obviously. But the president of the organization and the manager feel manager player manager of the team were devout. Christians and they didn't want. The team to play on Sundays, which is fine, you make your money. So they were encouraged to step aside. I mean I. Don't think they were forced to sign. They just stepped aside. Because, the rest of the team wanted to be out there on Sundays. We'll posey became demand fuel manager the team. And it played on Sundays. It would they would sorta play anywhere. They would pile. They would get on streetcars. If it was really local, they would piled into a couple of touring cars and go a little farther. They started playing around Pittsburgh and they were very successful and expanded to western Pennsylvania and very successful, and they started to play western Pennsylvania. Eastern, Ohio West Virginia. Busy busy busy played mining homeless as many games in a season as a league schedule. and. They were make money they. They were a good team. They were you know they were different. I think let's let's face it Black teams. We're a little. Exotic maybe in some of these small towns, people would come to see him play particularly if they were good. So by night, the early nineteen twenties, he's got a real. Strong regional setup. They were they were much admired and much sought after it got to the point where he could. Demand you know the the usual attendance in? dollars split is for semi pro or was. Like sixty percent to the home team and forty percent of the visiting team. Because the home. Team's gotTa pay the Umpires they got up. Maintain the park and everything. Posey was known to demand. Seventy five percent of the gate to bring his gates his team to your town, but you would pay it happily because you have two or three times the people in the seats. As you would if you were playing usual opposition. So, there was money. Here's money to be made. He made it by. The mid twenty he had reached out to make black major league level players who are at odds with their team owners, or at loose ends, or whatever and signed him. He gradually replaced the local heroes including himself as left leftfielder. He put himself as a player, but he meant to do it. Because he just he was good, but he wasn't that good and he was clearly building. A He was building towards something. We don't know exactly what his goal was at any given time, but he was always moving up. He was building his team to be sent something better than it was. The year before the two years before the three years before. And by the mid twenties she's got some really good players and they're in. They're in great demand around. Around that tristate area, this sounds to me though that this would you're describing right now. Is this is obviously the semi pro? Not even sort of league basis speed almost feels like the proverbial barnstorming model. Yeah, it was it was by by then if you if you had a day job in the steel, mills or something like that. You could forget about playing on a graze. I mean they were always on the move they were they go here. They go there. They play. They play at home. or in the Pittsburgh area during the week and then Saturdays and Sundays. Way They'd go, they'd be in Cleveland. They'd be in Youngstown Ohio. They'd be in Charleston West Virginia. He'd be halfway across. Pennsylvania and No they were they bunched on. What are they playing playing? Other other pre Negro, league type teams where they playing white teams where they plan to some extent coastal. Why teams mostly why teams they were, they were, they would play lower level in in the spring, or there may by May. They'd be playing Lower Level Minor League team, Minor League, teams or Kinda warm ups for both for both sides. But it was all money..

The mid twenty he had reached out to make black major league level players who are at odds with their team owners, or at loose ends, or whatever and signed him.

"Let's talk about that because this is i. I'm guessing the first time that he not only is is a player but also a manager or is able to source straddle both of those roles goals for the first time. Yeah that's exactly right and and being a manager At least at that time at least for Charleston meant really putting together the roster. You're the general manager. As much as you are a manager The mandate the teams. A man named Colonel Struthers who was like the second black policemen? Lebron Harrisburg Way. Something like three hundred pounds but taught ballet dancing to use the parents use quite a character He wasn't necessarily so well connected in the world of Major League Baseball to put together To be able to together really good roster that was that was Charleston's job and that was something I think he really I wanted to do so. Give me a sense. Then of of of the Harrisburg experience because I think it's also important period of time In the Negro Leagues generally right. Where a lot of things in this country things kind of stumbled along as the Great Depression effectively took root if you will electronically macro to the point where there was a from all indications? It seems like You know the leagues that had had sort of gotten sort of their starting in the early part of the twentieth kind of kind of crumbling and and really kind of you know kind of went dark after a while after say twenty nine nine and thirty but this is during his time in Harrisburg where he's arguably kind of the peak but he's he's being able to do both thinks thanks right and and kind of stand out in in both those categories both managing and playing. Yeah absolutely it. Is it definitely part of his peak. I mean some of the statistics. Sixty was up in Harrisburg Are Crazy they were considered crazy at the time. And and and this sort of more exacting research down in the last few years that people going back to them. All box scores There's still crazy can nineteen twenty four. It's four zero five. Nineteen twenty five. It looks like he hit like four twenty seven. I mean insane numbers But Harrisburg this is twenty four twenty five. This is before the Great Depression. His four year. Run Their Eastern color the had probably problems were not caused by the incipient Great Depression. That was probably just more. The usual. All endemic now under capitalization issues of the Negro Leagues. It's when he goes to Hildale and that's in twenty eight twenty nine that's from. The depression starts to catch up with him. Another league folds in which Dale is playing and That creates a lot of this Again player movement like crazy only with L. deal for a couple of years and that's with the depression and the folding of that team in that league pushes them out to Pittsburgh Eric where he spends the last sort of prime vague if he's playing career and ends up with a man named Cumberland Posey and his homestead Greece. All going Eh. Get to come hosie in this in a minute and held in Pittsburgh in particular in a second but but maybe this is a good opportunity to kind of maybe delve in a little bit in to some of the the numbers that he's putting up both on all parts I guess fielding certainly in hitting and maybe as you sort of answer or give give our audience a sense of just how dominant and standout his stats and his play was slash work. Can you square that though also with what I would imagine magin would be you know a a trust factor when it came to statistics in these. Because you know how how how credible how not or how we're lucky exactly the question dead. That's exactly the question asked the question I asked right. I WANNA know that too. I don't WanNa just rely on sort of mythical. Oh number Unfortunately we don't have to so let me answer your question. In a couple of ways I bush is. How good are Negro League statistics today? Can we trust them. And it's really odd in if you think about it but the stats we have. Today are much much better than we've ever had before including at the time When teams were very lax about affording stats or league certainly relaxed about collecting them? oftentimes and then you know numbers just sort of get made up in the press o without too much to back them up so what happened and this is just one of the great things happen in sports forth in the last generation the last ten or fifteen years really this army of volunteer researchers have gone back all. These newspapers have been digitized. A lot of box scores were reported. And they compiled like we compile statistics from those scores and and the site. I'd recommend any of your listeners are interested in this this I called team heads dot com houses. All of this and it's really well done and only counts gains against top competition petition. So this isn't just games against the little sisters of the poor. This is Major Negro League competition and also includes games at these teams played against Major League. Teams As well as you'd like the Latin America as well so. That's a pretty good answer that first question the quality we don't have all of them The estimate that I've gotten from people who are really know this well. It's like seventy five eighty percent of the box scores between teams so it good representative sample for the stats are pretty good Sorry if you wanted to jump in there but the second thing is We know that and we know. I know that Oscar right now and they're still putting a new numbers from time to time. Box Go right now at about half the plate appearances Willie mays add get some context tax. He had two hundred ten runs. Three hundred fifty five stolen bases hits three fifty one four thirty one days five seventy five slugging percentage. That's really good and I've sort of played around constructing. Like what would an alternative Major League Oscar truly been able to do it seems to me. You just very conservative and say well what did he at least three hundred home runs. He would've still in at least four hundred basis. He almost does again in half the plate. Appearances may have. It was very durable. He would hit at least three hundred three fifty one the Negro Leagues Um and we know who would have been like a positive defender you know in the advanced analytics language language you know above zero defensive wins above replacement who else in major league history has done that nobody nobody has has hit those used for marks..
