Those Lincoln Giants …

Up until this point, I’ve considered the mid-1930s Pittsburgh Crawfords to be the best African-American baseball team — not to mention the best baseball team anywhere, anytime, period — in history. But as I do more research into the life of Dick Redding (with assists from Gary Ashwill and others), I’m coming around to the notion that the Lincoln Giants of the 1910s is certainly a contender for the title. Thoughts?
