Pitch Black: African American Baseball in Washington

Baseball in Washington's black communities has a strong but quiet
history. Most people know the segregated history of our national pastime,
but few know how the story played out on the baseball fields in
Seattle and throughout Washington. Left without a professional Negro
Leagues team until 1946, much of our State's black baseball history
was undocumented. Pitch Black features vignettes of this rich history
using iconic artifacts, photographs, and oral histories. Organized by
NAAM.
