Product Overview

Though not a well-known name today, Pop Lloyd was a trailblazer in the world of baseball. The great Honus Wagner said, "It is a privilege to have been compared with him." This work looks at the life and career of John Henry "Pop" Lloyd, who played in the early Negro Leagues and went on to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. In an era when players could easily become a kind of commodity for their teams, Pop Lloyd worked hard to retain his autonomy, refusing to agree to a binding serve clause.

From the Publisher
Editors Note "John Henry "Pop" Lloyd was one of the greatest baseball players who ever lived. Beginning his career years before the first Negro National League was established, Lloyd played for a dizzying number of teams, following the money, as he'd put it, throughout the country and sometimes past its borders, doing several stints in Cuba"--Provided by publisher.
