Art Hamilton


A short bio from the Helmar “This Great Game” card back: Born on July 27, 1934, Junior is one of the finest catchers in the Negro Leagues. He has a quick release that often catches runners leaning toward second. Hurlers praise his pitch calling as he owns a keen understanding of the league’s hitters. As the starting catcher in East-West Negro League All-Star Game, in 1960, “Junior” belted a game-tying home run for the West at Comiskey Park.
