Interesting bio on Mr. Washington... I just bought an autographed ball at negroleaguelegends.org. Why don't you?

Here's a recent article I discovered about Mr. Washington. http://www.dailysouthtown.com/southtown/dsnews/033a

He sounds like a very intriguing guy with a fascinating story. It's too bad that the Yawkey family never gave Lefty a chance with the Red Sox. The Yawkey's were notorious--even during their time-- for having very racist views. The Bo-Sox, who were the very last team to have a Black player on its squad, signed Pumpsie Green during the '59 season, which wasn't long after Lefty tried out for them.
