Homestead Grays: Gone But Not Forgotten

This is awesome, with a few appearances from former Mayor Anthony Williams (nice bow tie dude!).  If you’re a baseball fan and a history fan, watch the whole thing. It’s an excellent history on the Homestead Grays, the Negro League baseball team that was founded in Pittsburgh and eventually closing out their existence occupying Griffith Stadium.

Check out this great photo, dug up from the Smithsonian’s website.
