TSDtv – History: Hidden In Plain Sight — The Martin Brothers, The Memphis Red Sox and Martin Stadium

The Memphis Red Sox were a Negro League baseball team that was active from 1923 to 1950. Home games were played at Martin Park; in fact, the Red Sox are one of the few Negro League teams to own a ballpark. The franchise won the 1938 First Half Championship in their second season in the Negro American League but, despite assembling some talented line-ups in the 1940s, never replicated the success of that year.
