Twin City Colored Giants
Toni Stone was also a part of the Twin City Colored Giants,
a barnstorming team. She convinced her mother to let her join by telling
her it was a way
to make a little extra money. In reality no one really
got paid very much;
two or three dollars per game. One of her teammates,
said, “She was a ballplayer, could throw just like a man. ”
Giants played other black teams, semi-pro white teams in towns
Minnesota and Wisconsin, and integrated teams. Stone’s teammates
her and played with her because she could get them runs.
