Indianapolis Clowns 1953 Home Jersey


Size Size Chart

History: In 1953, the Indianapolis Clowns of the Negro American League were looking for a new second baseman to replace their previous second baseman, a teenager named Hank Aaron, who had just been signed by the Milwaukee Braves. Like other Negro League ballclubs, the Clowns were struggling after the 1947 signings of Jackie Robinson and Larry Doby to Major League clubs opened the door for all of the best black ballplayers to leave the Negro Leagues for better opportunities in the big leagues. And so, looking to both replace a ballplayer of the caliber of Aaron as well as recapture the dwindling attention of fans and media, Clowns owner Syd Pollack had the idea to sign a woman ballplayer named Toni Stone, who became the first woman ever to play in the Negro American League.

Featured in "Toni Stone", an off Broadway play premiered in June 2019.
