1937 Dominican Republic Championship: Ciudad Trujillo vs. Aguilas Cibaenas.

Rafael Trujillo was a brutal dictator who overthrew the Dominican government in 1930, and stayed in power until he was assassinated in 1961. During his reign of terror, Trujillo amassed tremendous wealth by stealing from his countrymen, and he ordered thousand of black Haitians killed.

In 1937, Trujillo's popularity among his constituents was ebbing, so he thought that winning the Dominican Republic's baseball championship might make him more popular. He sent a representative to the United States with a suitcase of money to get the necessary players to win the championship. The representative approached Satchel Paige and said, "Here's some money. Take whatever you want, and buy the services of whatever other players you need to win."

Paige brought a few of his Negro League cronies to the island, but didn't realize until after they lost a few games how serious this baseball was! Paige then contacted Josh Gibson, Cool Papa Bell and others to bolster the lineup and the Ciudad Trujillo Dragons (Trujillo had changed the name of Santa Domingo to "the city of Trujillo) began to win. Trujillo's soldiers surrounded the field for every game, and the team was told, in no uncertain terms, that they better win...or else!

The Dragons made it to the championship game against a team featuring Martin Dihigo, Chet Brewer, Dave "Showboat" Thomas and Clarence Palm. This game will go down in history as one of the greatest and most pressure-filled contest in baseball history!

1934 Integrated North Dakota Stars versus Jimmie Foxx's All-Stars

The early days of baseball seemed a much simpler time, where fans would follow their favorite team or player by attending local games, checking box scores, and most of all listening to the games on the radio. Today's information age allows fans to follow baseball, on TV, the Internet, and even on their phones. Baseball has evolved to utilize this concept by allowing mobile phone advertising during broadcasts and teams themselves have taken advantage of all the mobile marketing possibilities. Teams, players and vendors now can create qr codes allowing fans to be virtually connected to all aspects of the game. These broadcasts highlight the best of the Negro Leagues and one of the classic mediums of following the game as a fan.

During the depression, some of the greatest Negro Leaguers in the world played for integrated semipro teams in the Midwest. In 1934, North Dakota put together an all-star team made up of the best players from teams in Bismarck, Jamestown and Valley City. Jimmie Foxx and fellow stars Heinie Manush, Pinky Higgins and Ted Lyons would never look at semipro baseball the same way again!

 

   

Coming Soon!

National Semipro Championship Game, 1935
This tournament was started in '35 and continues today--it's now called the National Baseball Congress Championship.
