Having attended both Dillard University and Xavier University, he later opened his own real estate agency and was also a published poet.

Malarcher become one of my favorite players from the Negro Leagues when I learned more about him after Replay Baseball put out their 1923 Negro Leagues card set some years back.
I'll keep the thread updated with info on 'the gent'.

Great article about Malarcher, in case anyone is interested:

I think part of the appeal of Malarcher to me is that he reminds me a lot of my grandfather in personality and even a bit in looks (in spite of the fact that my grandfather was a white man of German ancestry.)

A real nice summary of his life. Thanks for posting the link.

June 13

The Babe has a big day in the Big Apple but the Tigers find a way to escape with a W. Fred Sumption unleashed a fastball that Frank Baker sent to LF that was caught for the final out, give one of the twins his first MLB save. The Tigers have won 2/3 and will square off for the final game of the series June 14.

Give Le Morne Rouge some credit. After spending considerable time at the bottom of the standings they are beginning to showcase some of their young talent. At this point, they appear to be the only legit challenger to the Diamonds in the Martinique League. They are getting a lot of mileage out of the their number one and two SP's, as together they have an 8-2 record.
Hey, wait, did Julien Henri switch universes?

Stamina

No pitch counts in this day/age. The top 3 performances, as selected by our distinguished panel, are all SP's.

June 15, Giants at Cubs

I sat back and observed this battle for first place that took place in the friendly confines. Where else do you see match ups like Doc Kramer against High Pockets Kelly. Ah, those were the days.

This one went extra innings before the Giants put up a 3 spot to take the win. Ross 'Pep' Youngs had a big throwing assist from right field that nullified a go ahead run for the Cubs.

June 16 Tigers at Red Sox

Today I traveled to Fenway Park to take in the Tigers and Red Sox. Boston has been a bit shaky to date, but they are always tough at Fenway.

Another exciting extra inning game that saw the visitors win a close one. Several balls banged off the green monster, but, it was Heilman's belt to left in the 11th that cleared the monster. Tigers win by 3.

Rob Sumption has a batting average north of .300. Fred pitched the botton of the 11th to net a save.

Tigers and Red Sox, and Rajah

After winning the first two in Fenway, the Tigers dropped the final 3 games of the 5 game set giving Boston the series edge, 3-2.

Rogers Hornsby continues to rake National League pitching as he upped his hitting streak to remarkable 38 straight.

I'll be following the Cards LIVE each game until the streak ends.

In the Negro League Doc Dudley has the longest streak to date, 40 games. Bill Force of the Detroit Stars broke the streak as Doc failed to get a hit in 3 AB's (5 Plate Appearances).
