Re: [DC] Ray Battle, 1944 Homestead Grays of DC
In Response To: [AR] Daltie Cooper of AR; Homestead Grays of PA ()
A Negro League baseball player named Ray Battle appears in a 1944 photograph of the Homestead Grays of Washington DC. (This team had relocated from PA.) He is pictured in a team photograph. Does anyone know whether this Ray Battle might be related to Rufus and Rupert Battle (or Battles) who are uncles of Darlton D. "Daltie" Cooper? The Battle/Battles and Cooper families were neighbors residing near Arkadelphia, Arkansas in the 1920s.
