In 1884, Moses Fleetwood Walker -- very proud of his African heritage -- was the catcher for the Toledo Blue Stockings of the American Association, recognized then (and still) as a major league. Whether or not he was preceded by another black player -- William White, in 1879 with the Providence Grays -- in the major leagues can be disputed.
