Baseball historian and author Scott Simkus and former Harlem Globetrotter Larry ‘Shorty’ Coleman were guests on the latest edition of ‘In And Out Of Sports’, hosted by D.C. talk show legend Butch McAdams.
Simkus is one of America’s leading authorities on the history of the Negro League. His work to build a data base of Negro League stats has earned national acclaim. Simkus discussed the history of the Negro League and some of its greatest players such as Josh Gibson, Cool Popa Bell and Satchiel Paige.
In the second hour Butch chatted with Coleman who grew up in the D.C. area, and played collegiately at Texas Wesleyan. The 5-foot-11 guard was a spectacular ballhandler, playmaker and shooter. And as the video linked above demonstrates, Coleman’s skills stayed with him long after his competitive days were over.
Coleman talked about his basketball career and days with the Globetrotters. ‘In And Out Of Sports’ is brought to you by Hortons Funeral Service, Elite Dental, and Germ Sweep. Click to hear the interview.
