First All-Black Starting Nine in MLB

pjpjoPjpjo on 09/05/2008

FirstAllBlackStartingNineinMLB Photo Pittsburgh may not be the most racially progressive town, but the hometown team did set a standard that is rarely met, even today. On September 1, 1971, the soon-to-be world champion Pirates fielded a lineup of nine black players. While some were Latino, they were players who would have been too dark-skinned to cross the color line of the pre-Jackie Robinson era. I'll give you the position, and you identfy the player. For a bonus, I've asked you to identify the only white player to bat for the Pirates that day.
