COOPERSTOWN, NY – Pete Hill's accomplishments as a pre-Negro leagues star in the early 20th century led to his posthumous induction to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2006, as part of a special election of candidates who emerged through a five-year study on the feats of Negro leagues and pre-Negro leagues stars.

Though his baseball achievements defined his legacy in 2006, the man known as "Pete" Hill had a much different origin than information available to researchers and the baseball community at the time of his election.
