The year 1933 marked something of a fresh beginning for the Negro leagues, with the start of a new league and the inauguration of what became black baseball’s biggest event, the annual East-West All-Star Game. ....
The Crawfords are possibly the most famous team in Negro league history, featuring five Hall of Famers. Their offense was led by the 22-year-old Josh Gibson, by far the league’s dominant hitter (.411, 14 home runs), and the 35-year-old first baseman/manager Oscar Charleston (.352, 12 homers). Their pitching may have been even more impressive, with southpaws Sam Streeter (8-2, 2.62) and Leroy Matlock (7-5) right-hander Bert Hunter (8-1) taking pressure off the undisputed star, Satchel Paige.
