Blacks, Mexicans and Latin Americans were not allowed to play in the major and minor leagues already present in the US. By the 1880, this had led to the “colored” having their own professional clubs. After the American war of Independence there was a spate of such clubs and Philadelphia in the north became the centre of Black Baseball movement. Bud Fowler is the first know black to have played professional baseball in the 1878. Moses Walker and Welday Walker, two brothers were the first known blacks to have played major leagues in the year 1884. Integration of players – blacks in white dominated clubs and whites in the Negro league clubs started around the IInd world war and gained speed and by 1960s the discrimination had all but vanished. Jackie Robinson, a second baseman, and a six time all star selection is probably the most remembered black player for being the man who broke the color barrier in 1947.
