In 1886, a semi-pro team known as the Union Baseball Club was founded in Chicago. Made up of black players under the leadership of Frank Leland, this team worked its way to the top of Chicago''s semi-pro city league, an organization which otherwise included only white teams. In 1902, Leland recruited a talented young pitcher from Texas who brought with him not only incredible talent but an intense love of baseball and a knack for organization. It wasn''t long before the pitcher, Rube Foster, established himself as one of the game''s outstanding players, seized the leadership of the Union Baseball Club and founded the Chicago American Giants, a team that would dominate the early years of the Negro National League.
