                Thanks for the pictures of Josh Gibson.

                "... at the plate" picture is the one you usually see. It's great seeing the others.

                  From The Negro Leagues To Become Chicago Institutions

                  Hey, George H.

                  Do you have any photos of Ernie Banks (Kansas City Monarchs) and Minnie Minoso (New York Cubans) in their Negro Leagues uniforms? As I understand it, photos of Banks, as a Monarch, aren't that common, and photos of Minoso, with the NY Cubans, are extremely rare.

                  That's a nice selection of photos that you chose to share with us. Thanks!


                  P.S.: Is the photo of Quincy Trouppe from his brief time in the majors with Cleveland (1952) or from one of his Negro Leagues teams?

                        FYI - these photos are coming from various internet sites. I appreciate him sharing them with us but we could also do our own research as well.

                          There were numerous black ballclubs already in the 1860s.

                          Fowler 1878 is the earliest known black professional player, when he played three games for Lynn in the International Association, then the only league beside the National. I suspect he was a short-term hire or paid by the game.

                          He was ok by Lynn standards but poor by league standards, yielding 18 runs in 25 innings, presumably three complete games. He did get one win (1-2), thus the earliest known professional win by a black pitcher.

                          player Fowler 25 ip, 18 r, 6.48 RA(run average);
                          team Lynn 341 ip, 225 r, 5.94.
                          The other nine teams that played about 40 games were all much better, RA below 5, some below 3. Three of 13 teams played fewer games.
                          292 ip, 165 r, 5.09
                          234 ip, 206 r, 7.92
                          175 ip, 118 r, 6.07
                          So Fowler was effective approximately at the level of three teams that played short season and his own team, much the worst of ten full-season teams by runs allowed. In his pro career he did not pitch much He was mainly infielder and organizer.

                            Rare Pix From Minoso's Negro Leagues Days Are much Appreciated!

                            The first three Minoso photos are great, especially the one of Minoso and his teammate. Last photo appears to be of Tony Oliva, however.

                            Any other Minoso Negro Leagues days photos available? Any photos of Banks with the Monarchs available?

                            Is the Quincy Trouppe photo from his Negro League days or is that one of him with the Cleveland Indians?

                            Thanks, George! Great work on short notice! I asked the official Negro Leagues website the same question a few years ago and they couldn' come up with any pix of Minoso as a Negro Leaguer, so your effort represented some real hard digging.
