Blackball in the Hoosier Heartland : Unearthing the Negro Leagues Baseball History of Richmond, Indiana
by Alex Painter




Overview -
Though situated in what is traditionally considered the heart of Hoosier basketball country, perhaps no small city can claim Richmond, Indiana's history with baseball's vaunted Negro Leagues. For decades, hundreds of players, all barred from the major leagues on account of their skin color, graced the Richmond ball diamonds, and utterly dazzled the locals with their play. Many of the players would end up in the pantheon of baseball legends. Grab yourself some peanuts and Cracker Jack and enjoy this untold history
