#Shortstops: Negro National League 1940 Championship Trophy
Looking back on their history, there’s no shortage of success for the Grays. When outfielder Cumberland “Cum” Posey took over as manager in 1920, he brought in changes and new strategies that would prepare the team for success. Between 1930 and the dissolution of the team after the 1950 season, the Homestead Grays won 10 Negro National League pennants and three championships.
