This chapter describes a view that recognition should be afforded to the great stars of Negro baseball at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York. The chapter states the arguments that may be made not to support such recognition including the lack of records and experience with major league players of Negro clubs. Nonetheless, the chapter presents answers to these arguments with humor. The chapter also provides a mechanism to determine the number of Negros who may be added by means of percentage and also a way to determine who may be included in the Hall of Fame. The chapter expresses a desire for Negro baseball players to be recognized albeit belatedly for their contributions in baseball history.
