The Negro League baseball history fact for today

In his seven year Negro League baseball career (1936 – 1942), Curt Henderson’s versatility made him a valuable asset for his team.  He was a smooth fielder that could play second base, third base, shortstop, and in the outfield; but was not a consistently good hitter.  Starting with the Homestead Grays in 1936, Henderson played with seven teams; including two stints with the New York Black Yankees (1937, 1942).  In 1940 as a shortstop with the Indianapolis Crawfords, Henderson was selected to play in the East-West Negro League All-Star Game.
