While there visit with Mamie "Peanut" Johnson, the last surviving female (and one of three women) to have played with the men of the Negro Leagues! A member of the Indianapolis Clowns (1953-1955) she played against baseball icons like Leroy "Satchel" Paige, Buck O'Neil and Henry "Hank" Aaron. Over her three-year stint Johnson posted winning pitching records of 11-3, 10-1 and 12-4. Also in attendance will be Al Burrows, star player with the NY Black Yankees & Indianapolis Clowns.
Both will be on hand to sign autographs and reminisce about the "Old Days." Here's A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY to have your own, personalized, autographed T-shirt or cap from one of the Original Living Black History-Makers!!
Negro Leagues Apparel will be ON SALE.
