Larry Doby
Placeholder Image
We are very pleased to see Congress introduce legislation to honor the life, career and legacy of Kershaw County native Larry Doby with the Congressional Gold Medal. Doby’s contributions to Major League Baseball as well as his contributions to the civil rights movement are prodigious and absolutely worthy of honor and remembrance. Doby, the only Major League Baseball Hall of Famer from Kershaw County, was the first African American baseball player to play in the American League and the second to play in the major leagues.
