About

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. I’m at work on a biography of Charleston, who like me was born and raised in Indiana. My goal is to make Oscar’s extraordinary life and accomplishments better known–and I invite you to help.

On this site, I’ll be sharing facts, anecdotes, stories, and statistics about Charleston on as regular a basis as I can manage. I’ll also be sharing interviews I have conducted with those who knew Charleston.

So if you knew Charleston, knew someone who knew him, are a relative of Charleston, are a Negro Leagues researcher, or are just a baseball lover or history aficionado with something to say about Oscar, I hope you will chime in and help me make this site a reliable repository of Charlestoniana.
