100th Anniversary of the Negro Leagues

I’ve started seeing some articles and videos etc noting this, looks like MLB are celebrating it this season. Thought I’d share a couple things I’ve found so far, feel free to add

A ‘Caught Listening’ podcast, interviewing the President of the Negro Leagues Museum in Kansas City https://youtu.be/2KQv5pXFxe4

Some MLB videos with Howie Kendrick about Buck Leonard and other things https://www.mlb.com/video/howard-discusses-buck-leonard (can use tags under that video to find more)

I'm sure we will be doing something here in Cleveland. We had a Negro League team called the Buckeyes, maybe one or two others, I don't remember exactly.

I've been told my late grandfather became friends with Satchel Paige when he played here as a member of our major league team.
