That would be fun to talk to them but most have them have passed away by now+

You may wish to contact the Negro League Baseball Players Association at http://www.nlbpa.com. They have a "Contact Us" link which should help you get started with contacting the remaining players from that era.

I wouldn't get too discouraged - the Negro Leagues lasted until the early 60s, so plenty of former Negro Leaguers are only in their 60s and 70s

The Negro League was a league founded by Ruth Foster. The Negro League let black people play baseball in their own league. The Negro League was the major league for black people. Most people do not believe this but the Negro League was rougher than the major league back around the 1900s. When Ruth Foster died the Negro League shut down. A few years later Gus Greenlee took over the Negro League. He was a manager of a team. He had the team with Sachel Paige on it. If you weren't aware he was the best Negro baseball player.

It depends because Satchel Paige played on several minor and major league teams; as well as the Negro League. When he played on the Kansas City Monarch's team (one of the Negro League teams), his number was 25.
