Minnie Forbes

Minnie Forbes purchased the 1956 Detroit Stars from her Uncle Ted Rasberry and became the third woman in the U.S. to own a Negro League team. Several years after the acquisition, Forbes went on to play as the third basemen for the Kansas City Monarchs becoming the fourth woman to play baseball in the Negro Leagues. (Photo: Mark Cunningham/MLB Photos via Getty Images)
