About the Event
This presentation will discuss the annual assembly of the best Black and Latino baseball players, who were the equals of their White counterparts in Major League baseball. The East-West All-Star Classics ranked among Black America’s favorite sporting events attracting tens of thousands of fans each season.
Most games were held at Chicago’s Comiskey Park; but New York City, Washington, DC and Cleveland, Ohio also hosted the contests sometimes in a given season as a second All-Star game.
We are thankful to the Cuyahoga County Arts and Culture Council for funds to support our efforts. As a result all programs are free.
