Philadelphia Giants, 1904

In 1904, Rube Foster left the Philadelphia Cuban X-Giants for the Philadelphia Giants for more money. Unlike the white baseball where players were property of teams, black star players routinely changed teams for more pay. The Philadelphia Giants won championships in 1904, 1905, and 1906, thanks to Foster's incredible pitching. Foster is pictured in the back row, second from the left.
