Leon Day (October 30, 1916 March 13, 1995) was an American professional baseball pitcher. Who spent the majority of his career in the Negro leagues. Recognized as one of the most versatile athletes in the league during his prime, Day could play every position, with the exception of catcher.
And often was the starting second baseman. When he was not on the mound. At the same time, he was an above-average contact hitter. Which, combined with his effectiveness as a baserunner and his tenacious fielding, helped cement Day as one of the most dynamic players of the era. Debuting in the Negro leagues in 1934, Day played with the Baltimore Black Sox.
In 1937, Day had the best season of his career as a member of the Eagles, finishing with a perfect record of 130 and a batting average. Day also played Puerto Rican winter ball. He holds both the Negro and Puerto Rican league records for strikeouts. In a game, and appeared in the most EastWest All-Star Games.
Because of his soft-spoken demeanor, Day's accomplishments were not immediately recognized as opposed to other elite pitchers of the league like Satchel Paige. Nonetheless, Day is considered one of the best pitchers of the Negro leagues, equaling and sometimes surpassing the abilities of his rivals. In 1995, Day was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Just six days before his death at 78 years old. Additionally, I slip all autographed photos inside sturdy photo-protective sleeves.In most cases, using Jack Smalling's baseball address lists and other assorted address lists, I wrote to both active and retired baseball players, sending them letters, requests for signatures, and self-addressed-stamped envelopes. This is how I obtained thousands of autographs. I stand by every item I sell. All the old time autograph dealers know me and the professional authenticators will vouch for my reputation as well. I do this on a part time basis, so sometimes emails take a day.
PLEASE NOTE: Most items come with certificates of authenticity from outside companies (JSA and PSA predominantly; they are the best). Sincerely, Joe Binder , Downers Grove, Illinois.
