“We are excited to spotlight this year’s BIG PITCH venue, The Negro Southern League Museum,” said Deon Gordon, REV’s Director of Business Growth. “We are looking forward to having all THE BIG PITCH participants and guests experience The Negro Southern League Museum.”
Opened in August 2015, the museum tells the history of black baseball in America through the eyes of Birmingham, Alabama. It is thought that more Negro League players came out of Birmingham than any other city due to its Industrial League.
“The Negro Southern League Museum is excited to host THE BIG PITCH,” said Natasha Rogers, director of the museum. “Small businesses are a vital component and major contributor to the strength of our local community. Hosting the event at The Negro Southern League Museum not only brings awareness to the talented innovators, but it also provides us with an opportunity to remind the community of the Negro Southern League’s impact on and off the field.”
