The House That Ruth Built and Pop Opened! Negro League Baseball at Yankee Stadium

Lawrence Hogan Ph.D., Professor of History, Union County College, presents the history of Negro League baseball from 1930 through 1948 at America’s most historic ballpark, Yankee Stadium. His focus will be on the historic opening of the Stadium to Negro League play on July 5, 1930, for a doubleheader that is arguably the most significant game ever played at the fabled Yankee Stadium. An array of exhibit and video material will enrich your experience.
