The bus that would roll into into Bill Meyer Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn., in the fall opened an endless field of opportunity when Charlie Fraley was a youngster.
The bus carried baseball legends.
Among them were Joe Black, Elston Howard, Roy Campanella, Don Newcombe and Larry Doby.
And Jackie Robinson.
All those baseball players, and many more, were part of a barnstorming team of black stars who toured the southern U.S. to make extra income once their Major League seasons had ended.
