Every Other Sunday

Every Other Sunday

Slaughter Hanson, Birmingham, Alabama, 1999

Description

Printed in a limited run, Every Other Sunday was produced as a commemorative item for display. The book tells the story of Alabama’s Birmingham Black Barons, one of the most successful baseball teams in the Negro League history. From 1920 until its breakup in the early ‘60s, the Barons’ home games at Rickwood Field were scheduled on Sunday afternoons to alternate with major league teams. The audience for this book is really fanatical sports historians and civil rights researchers. The die-cut calendar numbers are the actual three months of Sundays that the Black Barons 1948 team—the most historic Negro League champs—played. Starting center fielder was a 16-year-old rookie, Willie Mays.
