In 1934, The Chatham Coloured All-Stars became the first all-Black baseball team to win an Ontario Baseball Association Championship. To keep this historic team’s memory alive, and continue OLG’s commitment to Ontario communities, OLG partnered with MLB and brought them back in baseball’s most popular video game—MLB The Show 22.
You can help keep their memory alive too. Follow the instructions below to build and play as this historic Ontario baseball team in MLB The Show 22.
Special thanks to Fergie Jenkins Jr, Blake and Pat Harding, Dorothy Wright from the Chatham-Kent Black Historical Society, and Dr. Heidi Jacobs from The University of Windsor for helping to tell the story of The 1934 Chatham Coloured All-Stars.
