LOS ANGELES WHITE SOX 1946
Abe Saperstein founded the Negro West Coast League at the end of World War II when black baseball finally took root on the west coast with the major influx of workers in war industries. There were six teams: the San Diego Tigers, Los Angeles White Sox, San Francisco Sea Lions, Oakland Larks, Seattle Steelheads and Portland Roses. On June 4, the Sox lost their season opener to Portland 8-3. Fifteen games later, sporting a record 3-12 they were gone. No player had more than 22 at bats. The mysterious Velma Revada, a female, hit .417 for the most evanescent of major league teams. All navy Wool Cap, 3” Firm Visor, All Felt Logo.
