Joe Black, born on February 8, 1924, was a talented Major League Baseball pitcher who broke barriers as one of the first African-American pitchers in the modern era. He made his debut in 1952 with the Brooklyn Dodgers, becoming an integral part of their pitching staff. Black’s notable achievement came in the 1952 World Series when he became the first African-American pitcher to win a World Series game, helping the Dodgers secure the championship. Known for his electric fastball and sharp curveball, Black’s pitching prowess made him a formidable opponent on the mound.
