Fun Cards: “Baseball Immortals” Ben Taylor

Taylor

According to the Hall of Fame’s website, Ben Taylor “was soft-spoken and well-respected, but his reputation as a teacher was noted by Hall of Famer Buck Leonard who said, ‘I got most of my learning from Ben Taylor. He helped me when I first broke in with his team. He had been the best first baseman in Negro baseball up until that time, and he was the one who really taught me to play first base.'”
