Description
May 3

It's hard not to worry about white folks' ball because now that Jackie Robinson is playing with the Brooklyn Dodgers and Larry Doby is playing with the Cleveland Indians, everybody is thinking about going up. Just a year ago, Jackie played with the Kansas City Monarchs and Doby played with the Newark Eagles. Piper said that some of the players were so busy looking around for white scouts, they couldn't find the ball.
