David Malarcher

Dave Malarcher (NOIRTECH RESEARCH, INC.)David Malarcher was an erudite, disciplined, and reverent man known appropriately as “Gentleman Dave.” As a player, manager, and executive in the Negro Leagues from 1920 to 1940, he was a small, speedy, and smart third baseman, whose play embodied the methodology of one of his mentors, Rube Foster. Malarcher later became a manager, utilizing what he learned from Foster and his other great mentor, C.I. Taylor, to great success. Malarcher led his teams to multiple championships and always had the respect of his players. As was written in an article when he left baseball, “he was a perfect model for young ballplayers – he was a credit to baseball in Chicago and the nation over.”

Later in life, he joined the Society for American Baseball Research, attending Negro Leagues reunions and SABR conventions, and writing a poem in tribute to Oscar Charleston that was published in the 1978 Baseball Research Journal.
