There were four Taylor brothers involved in Negro League baseball. The oldest, C. I. (Charles Isham), was the well-respected field manager of the Indianapolis ABCs who were a charter member of the Negro National League in 1920. He was elected the league’s first Vice-President. “Candy” Jim Taylor was a good fielding third baseman and later in his career became a manager. “Steel Arm” Johnny Taylor was a pitcher. The youngest brother, Ben, became one of the best first baseman in Negro League baseball and was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2006.
