Moses Fleetwood Walker, the man that broke the color barrier in major league baseball (Pay Tribute)
We think it’s always an appropriate time to remind you that the first African American player to play Major league Baseball played in Toledo.
Not that we had to remind you, of course. Moses Fleetwood Walker was the catcher for the Toledos, and one of their best players, when they made their debut in the American Association in 1884. Toledo history doesn’t get much better than this.
Show your Toledo pride on opening day (it will be here before you know it) with our vintage Moses Fleetwood Walker shirt this year! Get yours in our stores or on our website.
