For all that stands today, “Big Newk” was the original. He was a ground zero of firsts. He was the first pitcher to win Rookie of the Year. He was the first black pitcher to start a World Series game. The first pitcher to win the coveted Cy Young Award at all, and the first to be named the National League MVP in the same year. He was also the first black player to win 20 games in a season (1951), thus making him the first of the hallowed Black Aces.
Newcombe left his mark on baseball forever, but the biggest strike he delivered was to any antiquated notions of inequality. We continue our tribute to the legend himself with this new hoodie!
