Operation: New Orleans

Just wanted to give a quick preview of what I’ll have over the next couple weeks. Basically, I’ll be focusing on significant Negro Leagues figures from New Orleans, an overlooked, unappreciated hotbed of black baseball activity.

The series will be highlighted by reports from Seattle about Herb Simpson’s trip there next week, but I’ll also try to have posts about figure like Allen Page, Winfield Welch, J.B. Spencer and others. So order some jambalaya and gumbo, settle in on Bourbon Street and get ready for the straight dope from the Big Easy!
