Negro Leagues Night

Negro Leagues Night

Join the Indians as we pay tribute to the rich history of the Negro Leagues in Indianapolis through a partnership with the Indiana Civil Rights Commission. Indy native Oscar Charleston, who was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1976, managed the Indianapolis Clowns in the early 1950s. The Indians will wear Clowns jerseys in recognition of the Negro Leagues club. Indianapolis Clowns jerseys will be auctioned off until the end of the seventh inning to benefit Indianapolis Indians Charities. Text VICTORY to 79230 to bid.

Vanessa Rose, granddaughter of Hall of Famer Norman “Turkey” Stearnes who played 19 seasons in the Negro Leagues with the Detroit Stars, Chicago American Giants, Philadelphia Stars and Kansas City Monarchs, will be in attendance. Clips from her podcast “Reclaimed: The Forgotten League” produced by ABC News will run in-park throughout the game.
