I have a book, "Blackball Stars", Negro League Pioneers, by John B. Holway. Several pages have information about John Donaldson, one of the best left-handers in black annals. It talks about how they barnstormed through the little towns of prairie America__Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, the Dakotas _ traveling in a special Pullman, which had cost $25,000.
It says they toured with a wrestling team and a dance band, so at each town they offered a ball game and wrestling match, followed by a dance. They even brought their own bleachers and canvas fence.
There is a bit of info on about four or five pages of the book. If you would like to email me at [email protected]
, I can scan the pages and send them to you.
