Item # 677138

May 17, 1943

THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 17, 1943

* New York Black Yankees vs. Cubans
* Rare Negro League baseball reporting


The sport's section (page 19) has one column headings: "CUBANS TURN BACK BLACK YANKEES, 10-2" "Capture Negro League Opener, Then Battle to 5-5 Tie" See photos for text and score graph here. Uncommon to find reporting on the less popular Negro Leagues during this time.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much on World War II. Complete in 32 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally nice.
