​Pittsburgh Crawfords Negro League Baseball Lambswool Cardigan in Black Raisin

Pittsburgh Crawfords Negro League Baseball Lambswool Cardigan in Black Raisin.

The Pittsburgh Crawfords, popularly known as the Craws, were a professional all-black baseball team that played in the Negro Leagues, active between 1931-40. Founded in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the Craws began as an interracial team of local Hill District youth who played ball together in the neighbourhood sandlots. These resident families included black migrants from the South and European immigrants who were attracted to industrial jobs in the city. The team was named after the Crawford Bath House, a recreation centre in the Crawford neighbourhood of Pittsburgh’s Hill District. In the 1930s after being bought by businessman Gus Greenlee, the Crawfords were one of the strongest Negro League teams ever assembled, signing stars such as Satchel Paige and Hall of Famers Judy Johnson and Cool Papa Bell. The Crawfords played in Greenlee Field (named after the manager) which was one of the few parks to be built and owned by a Negro League team. The Craws won two League titles in 1935 and 1936.
