CUMBERLAND ‘CUM’ W. POSEY
By the early 1920s, Posey owned the Grays, and he turned the team into a profitable business venture. After taking leadership roles in the organized black baseball leagues, he returned to run the Grays. Homestead continued to be a barnstorming power and eventually became the dominant team in the second Negro National League. Posey remained one of the most powerful men in black baseball until his death.
