Hopes high Negro League stadium will make comeback

Larry Doby, Jr., the son of Larry Doby, a baseball player who integrated Major League Baseball's American League in July 1947, just months after Jackie Robinson broke the National League's color barrier, stands outside of Hinchliffe Stadium, Wednesday, April 16, 2014, in Paterson, N.J. Hinchliffe Stadium, where Doby Sr. played high school football before playing in the Negro League with the Newark Eagles, was once home to the New York Black Yankees, the New York Cubans and other Negro League baseball teams. Eleven members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame played there, including Larry Doby. The crumbling Art Deco stadium was granted national historic landmark status in 2013. Lawmakers are pushing to designate it as part of the nearby Great Falls National Historical Park. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)
