Developed by the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in conjunction with Kansas City’s hosting of Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game in 2012, this exhibit chronicles players from the Negro Leagues who became Major League All-Stars. From Jackie Robinson’s breaking of the color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, until 1959 when the Boston Red Sox became the last team to integrate, 20 players from the Negro Leagues transitioned into the Majors and became All-Stars. Today, only three of that illustrious group of 20 are still alive: Hank Aaron (Indianapolis Clowns), Willie Mays (Birmingham Black Barons), and George Altman (Kansas City Monarchs). The exhibit showcases rare photos, biographical sketches, and other interesting factoids designed to give fans a greater understanding of the immediate impact that the Negro Leagues had on Major League Baseball.
This exhibit is in conjuction with the event The History of the Negro Baseball Leagues with Bob Kendrick, President of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum on September 13.
