Max Manning - Baseball pitcher. He was a former Negro Leagues pitcher who was offered a major-league tryout only to have it rescinded because of his race. A 6-foot-4-inch right-hander with a side arm delivery, he was sometimes called "Dr. Cyclops" because of the thick eyeglasses he wore. He signed a contract with the Newark Eagles in 1938 and played with them for 10 years. He pitched the final game of the Negro League World Series in 1946 as Newark defeated the Kansas City Monarchs 3-2.
