Milt Welch 1945

Applying the same approach that you used in respect of the Giordano image you may well also find the attached image of Welch to be equally beneficial, perhaps more so, as this clearly depicts him in the headwear of his only Major League team..

Newk Was First Ever Cy Young Award Winner

Don Newcombe (1926-2019)
Don Newcombe held too many distinctions lo count.
As a teenager he was one of was one of the Negro Leagues last new stars going 14-4 in1945, his only Negro Leagues season. He immediately attracted the attention of Branch Rickey who signed him to a minor league contract in 1946 were he played for a team in Nashua, New Hampshire at a lower level than Jackie Robinson, who debuted for AAA - International League Montreal that year.
He the was NL 1949 Rookie Of The Year with 17 wins and he started that season in the minors.
He was among the first African-American All-Stars earning All-Star spots on the All-Star game rosters in 1949 along with Dodgers teammates Roy Campanella and Jackie Robinson for the NL and Cleveland's Larry Doby for the A.L.
He won 20 games three times, while missing the 1952 and 1953 seasons to military service during the Korean War, which could have been peak performance seasons.
Newcombe spearheaded the Dodgers drive to the 1955 NL pennant by going 20-5 (no other Dodgers pitcher won more than 13 games that season) as Brooklyn eventually won their only World Series.
He became the first-ever Cy Young Award winner in 1956 with his sublime 27-7 career best record. (Sorry, best of a generation hurlers like Warren Spahn and Robin Roberts, (especially Roberts who had won 20 or more for the six prior consecutive seasons, 1950 to 1955, before the Cy Young Award was inaugurated in 1956). Once again, "Timing Is Everything".
Newcombe had great timing. From his Negro leagues notoriety in '45 to his entry to Organized Baseball Debut in 1946 to his 1949 rookie year to that World's championship in 1955 and his great Cy Young peak season of 1956. Let's not forget that Newcombe suffered the taunts and humiliation from racial bigots as well. Branch Rickey wisely moved Newk's minor leagues debut to Class D Nashua, New Hampshire in less bigoted New England after a league refused to let black players play for the Dodgers' Class C affiliate in Danville, Illinois, which was the level where Rickey had originally intended Newcombe's minor leagues career to start at as Newcombe was about to turn 20.
Newcombe spoke up about many issues affecting baseball and race relations in recent years. Gone now is a racial pioneer and one of baseball's truly historic and heroic figures. R..I.P. Mr. Newcombe.
