Omaha City Championship Baseball Team

Description

Black baseball was popular throughout the Midwest during the mid-20th century, including Omaha. It provided a social outlet for community members, opportunities for skilled ballplayers, and entrepreneurial possibilities for team owners. Many black baseball teams were sponsored by local industries, like the Storz Brewery, which sponsored these “City Champs” in 1944.
