MINNIE MINOSO

First African American player on the White Sox, signs this baseball cap in silver felt tip

Hat Signed: "Minnie Minoso/#9". Black and white, wool Chicago White Sox cap, size 71/8. MLB Diamond Collection. Signed on the bill. On May 1, 1951, in a game against the Yankees, the young Cuban speedster became the first black player to don a White Sox uniform. Minoso (1922-2015)  finished his rookie year as the AL leader in stolen bases (31) and triples (14); his .326 batting average was second only to Ferris Fain's .344, and his 112 runs fell one short of Dom DiMaggio's league-leading 113. Minoso was TSN's Rookie of the Year. He led the AL in stolen bases again in 1952 and 1953 and in triples in 1954, and tied for the league lead in steals in 1956 and in doubles in 1957. He would do whatever was necessary to get on base, including getting in the way of fastballs. In 16 AL seasons, he set the league record by being hit by a pitch 189 times. Following stints with the Cardinals and Senators, he retired after spending 1964 as a White Sox pinch hitter. Fine condition.
