[edit] Biographical Information

One of the best Negro League pitchers ever, Brown finished his career with one win fewer than Satchel Paige, along with twenty-seven fewer losses. Although already into his forties, he played in the Quebec-based Provincial League in the early 1950s and managed a number of semi-pro teams in the province as well.

Brown married the daughter of Cum Posey on July 4, 1935 in a ceremony at home plate.

He was elected to the Hall of Fame by the Special Committee on the Negro Leagues in 2006.
