In 1946, the Cleveland Buckeyes signed Eddie Klepp, making him the first openly white player in the Negro Leagues. Klepp's presence led to some run-ins with segregationist laws in Birmingham, AL as he was not allowed to play with the team. Though he showed some promise, he was not good enough, appearing in only three games and was released in June. In September, Klepp was convicted of burglary and never returned to professional baseball. It is unclear if Klepp's signing was strictly a promotional stunt or not.
