Larry was an outfield star in our country's historical American Negro League. He later befriended and barnstormed with one of Major League Baseball's most legendary greats, Satchel Paige. Larry was a consistent .300-plus hitter with the ability to hit the ball to all fields, homerun power, impeccable speed, and a rocket arm that earned the selection of two East-West All-Star games in 1958 and 1959. He played for the Memphis Red Sox (1957), Detroit Stars (Detroit Clowns) (1958), Kansas City Monarchs/NY Yankees Minor League/St. Petersburg Saints (1959) and went on to play with the Satchel Paige All-Stars (1960---1964). Larry said, "I found someone to play with!" and it was his friend Satch, Larry LeGrande is an unsung hero from our historical American Negro Baseball Leagues who has a story to tell about being a Negro baseball player in America's terrifying era of human conflict and Negro oppression; he had the spirit and perseverance to overcome immense cultural, personal, political, and professional challenges.
