Black History Month: Stamped into history
Larry Doby stamp to debut in July
Larry Doby stamp
Camden native Larry Doby left his stamp on America’s landscape, the first African American to play in the American League and the only South Carolinian to be enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Come July, the legacy of this trail-blazer will be imprinted on generations today and those to come when the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) releases the “Major League Baseball All-Stars” stamps. These stamps will honor four Hall of Famers -- Doby, Joe DiMaggio, Willie Stargell and Ted Williams -- who, according to the USPO, “capture our imagination for their exploits and for what they symbolize -- the best of baseball -- and, in a way, the best of ourselves.”
