Great stuff Adam! A few more names to the list: "Big Chief" Dick Brookins (1909 Vancouver Beavers), Ernie Tanner (1909 Seattle Giants), and the great Hawaiian players "Honolulu" Johnny Williams (MLB & PCL), Lang Akana (1914 Portland Beavers), and Vernon Ayau (1917 Seattle Giants, Tacoma Tigers, and Vancouver Beavers)

Visited the Northwest African American Museum exhibit "Pitch Black" just yesterday. Contributed research to this project. Went on the tour with renowned Northwest memorabilia collector, Dave Eskenazi, and author of "Sunday Afternoons At Garfield Park: A history of Seattle black baseball 1911-51", Lyle Wilson. So glad they took time out of their busy schedules to visit, thank you again gentleman. Quite honestly, it was like having the founding fathers guide a tour at the Smithsonian. Just a blast!
