Hall of Fame Negro Leagues Baseball Player. One of the top African-American players of the late 19th century, he played for top integrated minor league teams, including the Buffalo Bisons, as well as some of the top all-Black teams. Primarily a second baseman, he was usually among league batting leaders throughout his 18 year career.
