Dandridge, who never played in the majors, but was one of the great Negro Leaguers, was the Minneapolis Millers third baseman and American Association MVP in the season that was about to end when 18 Dunkers attended this meeting. Manager Heath talked about the future of black players in baseball and a young man named Willie Mays who would join the Millers and hit .477 for them in 1951.
