Retro Detroit Wolves Bat

Current Stock:

The Detroit Wolves were a Negro league baseball club that played for the 1932 season only. In 1931 the Negro National League collapsed. It reformed in 1933, but in the interim Detroit was left without a Negro league team, as the Detroit Stars had been members of the NNL. In 1932, the city placed the Wolves in the new East-West League. They played in Hamtramck Stadium, where the Stars had played.

The team was owned by Cum Posey, who also owned the Homestead Grays and shuffled players between the two teams. Posey was the founder of the East-West League.

Partial proceeds from the sale of this commemorative beer bat go to the Negro League Baseball Museum to support their mission of preserving and celebrating the rich history of African-American baseball and its impact on the social advancement of America.
