Sol White Tragedies and Triumphs American History Famous People Social Studies Sports

We learn these facts about Sol White from the Major League Baseball website:

He preceded the color barrier, a fact often forgotten when people look at the history of blacks in baseball. It is a history that goes back deep into the 1800s, and Sol White, a black player, was a part of that history.

His part in that history has White poised for possible induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, as he is one of 39 players and executives from black baseball who are under consideration for a spot in Cooperstown.

He received that honor, posthumously, in 2006.
