We are looking for excitement, enthusiasm and support for this team from the East, the West, the North and the South.
The teams will be located in Lancaster, TX. Millington, Tennessee. DeSoto, TX and Jackson Mississippi. The creation of this professional Baseball League is designed to provide family entertainment and honor the history and memories of past African America baseball players (the same as the Negro League Museum in Kansas City, MO). The names of the teams in this league will reflect that of past Negro League players i.e. Rube Foster All-Stars, Satchel Paige All-Stars, and Josh Gibson All-Stars etc. This league in “NO WAY” will be limited to only African America players.
