A hard-hitting first baseman and outfielder whose career spanned both World War I and II, George Mule Suttles was one of the most feared sluggers in Negro league history. Suttles starred on a number of prominent teams, including the Birmingham Black Barons, St. Louis Stars, Chicago American Giants and Newark Eagles. He played in five East-West all-star contests, garnering seven hits. One of his most celebrated moments came in the bottom of the 11th inning of the 1935 East-West contest, when he smashed a game-winning three-run blast off fellow Hall of Famer Martín Dihigo.
