This site is dedicated to sharing and archiving information about Oscar Charleston, the greatest baseball player you’ve never heard of–or that most people have never heard of, anyway.
My name is Jeremy Beer. My biography of Charleston, who like me was born and raised in Indiana, will be published on November 1, 2019, by the University of Nebraska Press. Here is the cover:

On this site, I share facts, anecdotes, stories, and statistics about Charleston on as regular a basis as I can manage. I’m also sharing information related to the Charleston bio, any speaking engagements, and all that sort of thing.
In fact, I will be speaking on Charleston and the Negro Leagues in various places in late 2019 and throughout 2020, as we mark the one hundredth anniversary of the creation of the Negro National League. If you would like to contact me about a speaking opportunity or anything else, you may use the form below, or just drop me a line at beerjeremy [at] hotmail.com.
