    I'm back for '04...Here's a little trivia quiz for the new year

    First correct answer receives a card prize of my choice (not sure what it will be yet). Here's the question:

    Who was the first african american player in professional baseball? For a bonus, tell me the year he came into the league, and the team he played for. please submit all answers here. thanks and good luck.

    Oh well, I will try this answer:

    Moses Fleetwood Walker "Fleet" Walker was the first African-American to join the ranks of professional baseball. Born in Mount Pleasant, Ohio in 1858, he and his brother Weldy attended Oberlin College, where they helped start a varsity baseball program. Fleet joined the Toledo Mudhens as their catcher, but he was let go after only forty-two games because in order for Toledo to be able to play in other regions of the country, they had to release their "colored" players. Fleet Walker is still held up as a pioneer in the early attempts to integrate professional baseball
