Back in the 1880s, when the sport of baseball wove itself into America's fabric, African-American players formed professional teams because they were not allowed to play in major and minor baseball leagues. The teams eventually formed the Negro Leagues, which featured some amazing athletes and they're all currently honored in Kansas City, Missouri at the Negro League Baseball Museum.
Even though the last Negro Leagues team folded in the early 1960s, the legacy of the players continues. 35 former players reside in Cooperstown now, and stories of Cool Papa Bell, Josh Gibson, and Oscar Charleston remain. Pop culture has kept Jackie Robinson, Rube Foster, and others relevant. But, with many undocumented statistics and exaggerated tales of players, who was the best Negro Leagues baseball player ever? JustBats.com gives our take.
