The Boys Who Came to Play
|Between 1948 and 1952, Manitoba experienced the Golden Age of Prairie Baseball. In a little-known chapter of prairie history, 200 black baseball players, members of the dismantled Negro Leagues in the US, came north and gave Manitobans the best baseball they had ever seen, or may ever see again.
