League: Negro National League
History: The 1949 Elite Giants were led by a 20-year-old infielder named Jim Gilliam. After three straight All Star seasons in Baltimore by Gilliam, he was signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers, where he won the 1953 National League Rookie of the Year. As the Dodgers’ leadoff hitter for most of the 1950s, Gilliam won four World Series titles, made two All Star Game appearances, and saw his number 19 jersey later retired by the club.
