Chaney White

Catcher Larry Brown said White “was built like King Kong, but he could run like Jesse Owens…cut my shinguards off once.” Hall of Famer Judy Johnson called him the best one-run getter in baseball because of his speedy, daring baserunning. He was a .328 hitter in the Negro Leagues, and was considered a good outfielder with excellent range but a weak arm. He played with the 1926 and 1927 Eastern Colored League champion Bacharach Giants, and stole five bases in six attempts in the 1926 Black World Series.
