Meet Joe Black

As MLB celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Negro Leagues this year, we thought it would be cool to shed some light on some players that had an impact in Major League Baseball. The story of Brooklyn Dodgers right-hander Joe Black is certainly complex. A former Negro Leaguer who was among the pioneer players who forever shattered Major League Baseball's color barrier, he was the first African-American pitcher to win a World Series game -- Game 1 of the 1952 Fall Classic at Ebbets Field over the New York Yankees.
