Synopsis: The Hilldale Club of Darby, Pennsylvania (a Philadelphia suburb), was the dominant team in black baseball during the 1920s. Their success came about largely through the efforts of Hilldale president and manager Edward Bolden. Bolden's professionalism and reputation for fair play were instrumental in his forming the Eastern Colored League in 1922. The Hilldale Club and EC League flourished until 1927 when worsening economic conditions caused Bolden to lose control of his team. Traced here are the roots of the club, the development of black professional baseball and the three-tiered relationship between the Negro leagues, white semi-professional teams, and the major leagues.
About the Author: Neil Lanctot is the author of the critically acclaimed Negro League Baseball: The Rise and Ruin of a Black Institution. He has written for the Philadelphia Inquirer, Baltimore Sun, and several other journals and anthologies. He lives in West Chester, Pa.
