League: National Baseball Hall of Fame

History: Monte Irvin was an outfielder who had a 16-year career in the Negro National League and MLB. Irvin played eight seasons with the Newark Eagles in the Negro National League, becoming a Negro League All-Star on four occasions and winning the Negro World Series in 1946. After a pay dispute with the Eagles in 1942, Irvin played in the Mexican League with the Veracruz Blues before his career was interrupted by World War II. From 1943 through 1945 he was deployed with the all-Black 1313th General Services Engineers and spent time in England, France and Belgium. Upon his return from the war following an honorable discharge, Irvin rejoined Newark - despite an approach from the Brooklyn Dodger’s Branch Rickey that was turned down by Effa Manley - and helped drive them on to the Negro League World Series with a .404 batting average. He eventually made his move to Major League Baseball in 1949 when the New York Giants paid $5,000 to the Eagles for his contract. He won the World Series with the Giants in 1954, playing alongside Willie Mays in the Giants outfield. He played with the Giants one more season after that, then spent ’56 with the Chicago Cubs before retiring the following year. Monte Irvin was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1973, in large part due to his time in the Negro Leagues. He is also a member of the Mexican and Puerto Rican Halls of Fame. The San Francisco Giants retired Irvin’s number 20 in 2010. In 2016, at the age of 96, Irvin died of natural causes.
