Undeniable Episode 2: The International Impact of the Negro Leagues

Baseball outside of the United States, especially in the Caribbean, has grown tremendously throughout the years. One of the reasons can be traced back to Negro Leagues teams traveling to foreign countries to play games against native teams and in front of native fans. In fact, the legendary Roberto Clemente is said to have been inspired from watching Negro League games in his native Puerto Rico. On top of that, international players were able to play in the Negro Leagues in the U.S. for a taste of more competitive baseball. Some of these included Cuban legends Cristóbal Torriente and Martín Dihigo. You’ll learn this and more in our next episode of Undeniable!
