Greene Farmer

Greene Farmer, Jr., was an outfielder who played in 1942 with the New York Black Yankees and Jacksonville Red Caps, and in 1945 with the Indianapolis Clowns and the New York Cubans. I had previously posted on this thread a photo of him in a basketball uniform. Now, on the left, we have a photo of him in the baseball uniform of the 1946 Cincinnati Crescents, at a level below that of the established Negro Leagues. That photo is from the Lafayette (IN) Journal and Courier of July 16, 1946. On the right is a crisper view of Greene in the same basketball pose as the one posted previously (Sept., 2014) in the uniform of the Kansas City All-Stars basketball team.

Ted Strong, Sr.

Ted Strong, Sr. was the manager of the Indianapolis Athletics in 1937. The players on his team included his son, Ted, Jr., who went on to become the well-known Negro Leagues player. This Indianapolis team was in the Negro American League, playing at a level below that of the recognized Negro Leagues, but I'm posting this photo of Ted Strong, Sr., because he is a significant person in Negro Leagues history due to his relationship to his son. The photo is from the seamheads.com website.

Jeep McClain

According to seamheads.com, Eugene Walter "Jeep" McClain played second base for the Philadelphia Stars in 1945. I've seen some other references which indicate that he also played for the Stars in 1946 and the New York Black Yankees in 1947.

The photo is from the Philadelphia News of July 11, 1997, and accompanied his obituary. He died on July 7th that year.

THE NEGRO LEAGUES BOOK, by Clark and Lester, listed a pitcher named unknown-first-name McClaren with the 1945 Philadelphia Stars. Because seamheads.com doesn't show anyone by that name, I suspect that Jeep McClain is that guy. The names are sufficient close that they could easily have been confused.

Ed "Lefty" Derrick

Edward Lee "Lefty" Derrick pitched for the Nashville Cubs of the Negro Southern League from 1946 through 1950. He was considered the ace of the staff throughout that period. In 1947, he was said to have thrown 300 strikeouts for that team. It was reported that he was the best hurler in the league in 1948. The Davenport (IA) Times of June 16, 1951 listed him among the pitchers on the Baltimore Elite Giants that season.

He was born in 1924 and died in 2015.

The photo on the left is from The Tennessean, a Nashville newspaper, of January 19, 1994. The photo on the right is from The Tennessean of May 18, 1947, and shows him with the Nashville Cubs.

Dan Black

Dan Black does not appear in the usual Negro Leagues registers. However, an autographed ball (see below) for sale on eBay suggests that he was with the Baltimore Elite Giants from 1950 through 1955. The Davenport (IA) Daily Times of June 16, 1951 listed a Don (sic) Black among the newcomers on the Elite Giants. Since that Don Black was not included with the pitchers, that would have made him a position player. Looks to me like the newspaper was referring to Dan Black.

The photo of Dan Black comes from the book DADDY'S SCRAPBOOK, by Harriet Kimbro-Hamilton, daughter of player Henry Kimbro. The photo is from a group shot of men who all seem to have been associated with the Baltimore Elite Giants. The group shot is labelled a reunion photo.

Edgar "Blue" Washington

Edgar Washington pitched briefly for the 1916 Chicago American Giants. A head shot photo of him in the American Giants has been posted previously on this thread. This photo depicts him more fully in the American Giants uniform. It is from the SABR book, FROM SPRING TRAINING TO SCREEN TEST.

Under the name Blue Washington, he made a number of appearances in Hollywood films. He was in some top movies, such as The Birth of a Nation, King Kong, and Gone With The Wind. His remarkable career in films spanned from 1915 (silent film) to 1961. He played alongside many of the biggest names in Hollywood.

Lincoln Jackson

This is a much clearer version of the image of Jackson which I posted back in 2014. It shows him with the Cuban Stars. This image is from the Baltimore Afro-American of July 22, 1933. The previous posting was on the following page:

Harry A. Johnson

This image was originally posted on this thread in 2010 under player name George Stovey. It was recently confirmed by the Official Historian of Baseball, John Thorn, to be Harry A. Johnson of the Cuban Giants. At this point, there is no known photo of George Stovey.

Bill Stewart

Bill Stewart was an outfielder on the 1946 Memphis Red Sox. He also spent almost 20 years playing for various Negro League minor league teams. His photo has been posted previously on this thread, but this one seemed to be of sufficient quality to be worth posting as an alternative to the previous two. Bill Stewart died on August 24, 2017 at age 104.

He spent 1951-1955 with the Kansas City Monarchs. He was a slap hitter who was athletic enough to have spent some time playing with the Harlem Globetrotters.

Baylis is usually remembered as the man who gave Mamie Johnson her nickname of "Peanut". He was the first batter in the league to face Johnson in her mound debut and laughed about someone pitching to him who was "the size of a peanut". He promptly struck out.

This image is from the August 6, 1955 edition of The Pittsburgh Courier which, you'll recall, was an African-American publication.
Found a clean image of this. From a recent RMY Auctions listing.

Found this image of Ray depicted with the Newark Eagles, where they played before they moved to Houston. This is from a 2014 Houston Chronicle article. If you recall, the Civil Rights game was in Houston that year, and the Astros wore the Houston Eagles uniforms, while Baltimore wore Elite Giants uniforms.
