Dedicated Researchers Recognized Significance Of Cooperstown’s Fowler

FOWLER/From B1 search, dedicated that stone on July 25, 1987, there was no memorial to the man who has the best claim of any Cooperstownian to baseball greatness. Beneath the stone are the remains of John Jackson, aka Bud Fowler, who SABR declared was the first black to play in “organized minor baseball leagues” in the last quarter of the 19th century,

before “the colored curtain” exiled them from professional teams. Of 70 professional ballplayers, Bud Fowler, born in Fort Plain and raised in Cooperstown, “was the first (in pro ball) by several years and the one who played the longest, 10 seasons,” SABR researchers found. “He was also one of the best black players of that generation and thereby helped to

provide a limited opportunity for other players of his race.” The current movie “1942” has put Jackie Robinson in the public consciousness again, but Bud Fowler played his first professional game – in Chelsea, Mass. – in 1878, 68 years before Branch Rickey recruited Robinson for the Montreal Royals and, then, the Brooklyn Dodgers. While, since the SABR rediscovery, in particular, knowledge of John Jackson has risen among baseball fans – a biography, “Bud Fowler: Baseball’s First Black Professional,” is due out in June – he is little known to the public at large. Still, what a comeback since that morning in 1983, when newly arrived National Baseball Hall of Fame Librarian Tom Heitz was sorting files at 25 Main. “I was looking for someone else in the ‘F’ series,” he remembers, “and I happened upon a folder that said ‘Fowler, Bud.’ There was a note there, ‘Jackson=Fowler’.” The file had been started by Lee Allen, a Hall of Fame historian who had died suddenly on May 19, 1969, at age 54, leaving “a stack of pending projects,” Heitz later recounted in a published account. The folder indicated Allen had established the Cooperstown link, and also concluded

Fowler was the first black professional ballplayer. The name George Tillapaugh surfaced in the file, and Heitz sought out the Cooperstown funeral director (his son, Martin, runs Tillapaugh Funeral Service today). Tillapaugh, it turns out, had buried one of Jackson’s relatives (in the Christ Church yard), and had learned about the Fowler story. Another piece of the puzzle was in James Fenimore Cooper’s “Tales of a Northern County.” Jimmy Cooper, some surmised, went to school with Jackson, played ball with him and in “Tales” related that the “little black boy ... felt his color so much that he used to say that, if it would make him white, he would willingly be skinned alive.” “As a librarian, I had more than enough to deal with,” said Heitz. “It’s tempting for librarians to get involved in the research problems of their clients.” Still, as HoF librarian, he had standing to encourage others to pursue research he could not. In 1985, Heitz visited Bob Davids, a founding father of SABR, at his home in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. During the course of a long conversation and dinner at Davids’ home, he suggested that SABR take on the Bud Fowler story.

AllOTSEGO.life

Ornate tombstones surround the potter’s field where Bud Fowler was buried, unheralded.

A monograph Davids then prepared further strengthened the Cooperstown tie: He found Jackson’s father listed as a barber in Cooperstown in the 1860 Census. The 1970 Census listed the son as 13 and reported he “attended school within the year.” Davids’ article – it traces Bud Fowler’s professional career in some detail – was reprinted in the program for the 1987 “memorial observance” at the Frankfort potter’s field. And he credits two dozen benefactors for helping with the research, and helping raise money for the stone. Still, the genealogy had not been definitively estab-

lished and, as Internet offerings multiplied in the 1990s, Village Historian Hugh MacDougall took up the challenge. “He’s a fantastic researcher,” said Heitz. A long article in the black press – MacDougall found it in the Feb. 20, 1909, edition of the Indianapolis Freeman – further detailed the Cooperstown connection. And he obtained a copy of Fowler’s death certificate from the Frankfort town clerk, listing the former ballplayer’s death, Feb. 26, 1913, age 54, as being caused by “pernicious anaemia.” So as the 100th anniversary of his death approached, the outlines of the Bud Fowler/John Jackson story had fairly well determined, and Mayor Jeff Katz decided it was time to correct a historic omission, time for Baseball Town, repository of so many other communities’ baseball heroes, to recognize its own hero. “I picture myself as a knowledgeable baseball fan,” said Katz, “but I had never heard of Bud Fowler until I moved to Cooperstown.” Katz credits Tom Shieber, senior curator at the Hall of Fame, with suggesting the idea when they ran into each other at the 2012 Cooperstown Winter Carnival. The mayor first considered attaching a second street sign, “Fowler Way,” to “Hoffman Lane,” across from the Hall. Trustee Cindy Falk did some initial research, and she discovered an unnamed street in the village: The lane that leads from Chestnut Street, past the Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce, to Doubleday Field, the baseball shrine. Unnamed! “Once that happened, it became clear,” said Katz. “It was so perfect.” Bud Fowler, outgrowth of John Jackson’s Cooperstown boyhood, is the subject of commemorations the weekend of April 20-21. A street sign, “Fowler Way,” will be unveiled at 4 p.m. that Saturday. MLB official historian John Thorn will deliver an assessment after a plaque is then dedicated at Doubleday Field. At 10 a.m. that Sunday, his career will be discussed at a forum in the Hall’s Grandstand Theater. The question remains: Should John Jackson be ensconced in the Hall of Plaques in the community where he learned to play. Definitely, MacDougall declares. The Hall, of course, doesn’t pick its own inductees. The vehicle to accomplish that would be the Historical Overview Committee of the Baseball Writers’ Association of American, said Hall spokesman Craig Muder. Every three years, it prepares a Pre-Integration Era ballot, but it reported back its last ballot in December, so no further review will be forthcoming until December 2015. Still, MacDougall reports 10 Pre-Integration ballplayers were nominated. Bud Fowler, he said, was number 11. Who knows?
