The Negro League baseball history fact for today - February 6, 2013

There were fifty-three ballplayers from Negro League baseball that made it to the Major Leagues.  The last was Henry Mason who pitched for the Kansas City Monarchs from 1951 -1953 and was sold to the Philadelphia Phillies the next year.   Mason did not make his Major League debut in a Phillies uniform until 1958.  In his only 2 big league seasons (1958, 1960), Mason pitched in four games (10.2 innings) with seven walks, six strikeouts, and a 0 – 0 record.
