INDIANAPOLIS CLOWNS
THE CLOWNS FEATURED AN ARRAY OF PROFESSIONAL FUNNYMEN LIKE KING TUT AND GOOSE TATUM WHO PERFORMED ENTERTAINING ANTICS BEFORE THE GAME. THE CLOWNS DISPLAYED A SERIOUS SIDE IN 1952 WHEN THEY SIGN A YOUNG BALLPLAYER BY THE NAME OF HENRY "HANK" AARON.

THE UNWRITTEN RULE
An unwritten rule barred blacks from participating in white organized baseball. In response to this exclusion, black baseball players formed their own teams and played each other until 1920, when Andrew "Rube" Foster, a former black baseball player himself, organized the first Negro National League.
