OSCAR CHARLESTON | The Hall of Famer taking his patented swing is Oscar Charleston. He is believed, by many of his counterparts, to be the greatest Negro League player of all time and one of the best in the history of baseball. Charleston, who played for the Chicago American Giants in 1919, was inducted into the Hall of Fame by the special Negro Leagues Committee in 1976.
