Baseball Hall of Famer & Negro Leagues Legend Walter Fenner 'Buck' Leonard

Celebrating 50 Hall of Fame Years in 2022. Walter Fenner “Buck” Leonard is largely considered the greatest Negro Leagues 1st baseman of all-time.  From 1934 to 1950, he captained the great Homestead Grays of the Negro National League to 10 league championships and 3 Negro Leagues World Series titles. He played in a record 12 All-Star games, earning a reputation as one of the game’s most feared hitters and greatest all-around stars. Though he never played in the Major Leagues, he has been considered one of the top 50 baseball players of all-time and was among the first 3 Negro Leaguers elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
