πŸ“ŒThe Other Boys of Summer  is a magnificent look at the Negro League by filmmaker Lauren Meyer, who interviewed some of the surviving players to tell their stories.

πŸ“ŒThe Kansas City Star wrote a excellent piece on the 100th Anniversary of the Negro Leagues in 2020.

●We, as baseball fans, need to do all we can to help this 100th Anniversary celebration happen.

The Negro Leagues produced many Hall of Fame ballplayers, including Jackie Robinson, Larry Doby, Ernie Banks, Henry Aaron, and Roy Campanella.

Do what you can to help promote on Social Media by using the hashtag #NegroLeagues100 

Have a great weekend...and Play Ball! ⚾️πŸ’›πŸ’™
