(The Other) Boys of Summer

Negro Leagues museum official tells Black Expo of legendary players

(Continued)

“Mr. Wilson epitomizes the Negro Leagues,” Kendrick said. “He’s a great person and college educated; most people don’t realize that a high percentage of Negro League players had gone to college.”

Among others receiving special recognition for community contributions at Thursday’s luncheon were Madison County Community Health Centers CEO Tony Malone and Pat Raymore of the Gospel Music Workshop of America.

Also recognized were dozens of local men who played Negro League baseball for Anderson teams from the 1920s through the 1960s.
