If it's Negro Leagues, then it's either "Bullet Joe" Rogan or "Double Duty" Radcliff.

Re: so you think you know baseball............

I'm gonna go with Ted "Double Duty" Radcliffe? He actually did it in the semi pro's as he was in his late 40's where he played 4 more years.....

Nowadays, there's more forgiener's than than there are blacks playing the game. It's funny how the blacks's complain about their kids not playing baseball , yet the whites don't complain about basketball. A little bit of prejudice there, no? I would say definately YES!!! Yet the whites are always considered prejudice. Try to get get the NAACP to defend ya and see how far ya get..........I don't want to turn this into a racist post but there are just as many on both sides of the ledger..... And just as many good people on both sides of the ledger also........I worked with a black guy for about 20 years, we got along fine and he was a good worker also....

Well done!

Baseball's Sad Lexicon
These are the saddest of possible words:
"Tinker to Evers to Chance."
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
Making a Giant hit into a double –
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
"Tinker to Evers to Chance."

Re: so you think you know baseball............

read a story about tinkers, evers  and chance, they all hated each other and one time one of them left the other one behind and caught an early cab to practice. when the coach asked where the other one was etc...the one threw him under the bus and said he was out drinking late etc when he was with him earlier that morning. now that's low. hahaha

Baseball season is almost here !
