1910 Phil Dellar All-Stars

Billy Williams, the first of the great Minnesota black sluggers, pictured with the Phil Dellar All-Stars in 1910. Williams reportedly twice turned down offers to break into organized baseball as a Native American, saying, “I am a Negro. I am proud of my race and wouldn’t masquerade as an Indian for all the money in the world.” (COURTESY MINNESOTA HISTORICAL SOCIETY)
