outpitching Rube Waddell. After his noteworthy pitching career,
Foster successfully managed teams using the bunt, hit and run
plays, and stealing bases. In 1920, Foster created the National
Association of Professional Baseball Clubs, also known as the
Negro League which was comprised of teams from Chicago (Giants
and American Giants), Detroit (Stars), St. Louis (Giants), Dayton
(Marcos), Indianapolis (ABCs) and the Cuban Giants.
