Jamestown Red Sox
Based in Jamestown, ND, the Jamestown Red Sox were one of the top semipro teams, along with the rival Bismarck Churchills of the same state. Both teams had releid on minor-league ringers, but Jamestown upped the ante in 1932 by signing Negro League pitcher Barney Brown. The Churchills followed suit, beginning a bidding war that would make the two top semipro teams far better for the next few years, as one or the other won the big semipro tourneys. Joining Brown on the 1934 team were Double Duty Radcliffe, Chet Brewer and Quincy Trouppe.
