The East West All Star Games, online, Saturday, 08. August 2020

This presentation will discuss the annual assembly of the best Black and Latino baseball players.

A Virtual and Worldwide Negro League Centennial Event

During 2020, the Community Cup Classic Foundation, in partnership with The Josh Gibson Foundation , Lifeline Sports and several core partners, planned to host multiple events throughout the calendar year to celebrate the Negro League Baseball Centennial in Cleveland and the 75th Anniversary of the Cleveland Buckeyes first and only Negro League World Series title.

Along with many other national events, COVID-19 seriously impacted the implementation of these signature events. However, despite the grim realities of the health crisis, these core partners remain steadfast and committed to continue with our efforts to commemorate these monumental dates and educate the community and raise awareness of the impact these important historical events had on America as well as Cleveland, Ohio.

As such, we transition to a virtual worldwide platform to celebrate these historical accomplishments with a series of presentations by Ike Brooks, Negro League Baseball Historian.

About The East West All Star Games

This presentation will discuss the annual assembly of the best Black and Latino baseball players, who were the equals of their White counterparts in Major League baseball. The East-West All-Star Classics ranked among Black America’s favorite sporting events attracting tens of thousands of fans each season. Most games were held at Chicago’s Comiskey Park; but New York City, Washington, DC and Cleveland, Ohio also hosted the contests sometimes in a given season as a second All-Star game.

Programs are free and open to all. Donations to the project are welcome and will be split equally between the Community Cup Classic Foundation and The Josh GIbson Foundation. To receive the virtual login information you must register and may donate at that time.
