RIP: Willie Pope

As time goes by the players from the Negro Leagues say goodbye.

Last week, former Homestead Grays and Pittsburgh Crawfords pitcher William "Willie" Pope passed away. He was a member of the 1948 Negro National League Champion Homestead Grays, the last team to win a championship in that storied league.

Here is an obituary online.
