Doby made history with Indians
After his playing days ended, Doby became the second Black manager in the American League with the Chicago White Sox in 1978.
He was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998.
“He was such a classy guy and a remarkable human being,” former Major League Baseball Commissioner Fay Vincent said of Doby. “I don’t think he’s ever gotten his just due for what he endured and what he accomplished.”
Andrew Kivette was a public relations intern in the Hall of Fame’s Frank and Peggy Steele Internship Program for Youth Leadership Development
