1946 Photograph from the estate of Hall of Famer Monte Irvin and showing the three pitchers of the Newark Eagles Negro League team warming up at the ballpark. We were able to get about 10 images from this grouping, all were from 1946 guaranteed which makes this special as Hall of Famer Leon Day was the star of the team that year! While it is impossible to be certain, we believe the stocky man at center is Day. The image is absolutely the Newark Eagles and from the estate of Irvin, making it a special piece of Negro League baseball history!
