If you’re a fan of baseball and history, you don’t want to miss the Birmingham Negro Southern League Museum’s collections of memorabilia and artifacts from the Negro Southern League, the Negro American League, and Negro National League.The Negro Southern League, which spans from 1920 to 1951, brought greats such as Willie Mays and Leroy “Satchel” Paige, to name a few, to the national forefront of the sport.
In addition, fans begin to learn that there were three Black women pioneers of the Negro Leagues: Connie Morgan, Toni Stone, and the infamous Mamie “Peanut” Johnson, who made history pitching for the Indianapolis Clowns and was the lone survivor of the three women up until December 18, 2017.
The Negro Southern League Museum includes exceptional artifacts from the era, including one of my personal favorites – the interactive Satchel Paige hologram. Fans shouldn’t come to Birmingham and miss it!
