  BLACKBALL Lionel Evelyn played for the New York Cubans.

These are the men who played in the Negro Baseball League when it was the only place they could play. It has shaped their lives and fortunes and become an integral part of who they are. There is a quiet dignity and humble pride to this generation of ballplayers who were denied the opportunity to play in the major leagues just because of the color of their skin. They have been passing away at an alarming rate and it is the goal of this project to photograph the remaining players and let them tell their story.
