Bates/Parker: This Week in Baseball History interview with Jeremy Beer
From SABR members Mike Bates and Bill Parker at This Week in Baseball History podcast on February 12, 2020:
Despite being largely forgotten today, Oscar Charleston was perhaps the greatest and most popular Negro Leaguer of his day and one of the best players in baseball history. With special guest Jeremy Beer, whose biography of Charleston just won the Harold and Dorothy Seymour Medal, Mike and Bill learn about who Charleston was on and off the diamond, what his world was like, and why he has been left out of so many histories of the game. Plus, happy birthday to Jim Barr and Tex Hughson!
