the 411: Well for starters, there's just a few casual things under her belt... civil rights activist, co-owning and managing a Negro League baseball team, her stint as Negro National League treasurer, her role in Larry Doby integrating Major League Baseball’s American League, and being the first African-American woman inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Pretty epic if you ask us!
