July 4, 1950-Pitcher Danny Wilson becomes the second black player and first black pitcher in New Orleans Knight history when he debuts in the first game of a doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies before a packed house of 54,955 at Brennan Park, one of the largest crowds in the stadium's history.

New Orleans Knights characters-continued

Posted 04-25-2009 at 09:29 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)
