Best Answer

The Phillies first African American player was infielder John Kennedy whose first game with the team was April 22, 1957. I have no idea when he was signed. Kennedy's MLB career lasted 5 games. He had previous played in the Negro Leagues with the Birmingham Black Barons and Kansas City Monarchs.
