Summary
Baseball player and social worker Dennis Biddle was born on June 24, 1935 in Magnolia, Arkansas. When a scout and booking agent for the Negro League Chicago American Giants saw Biddle pitch a no-hitter in a local high school championship game, Biddle was offered the opportunity to try out for the team. He succeeded at tryouts and played for the Chicago American Giants during the 1953 and 1954 seasons. In 1955, a leg injury forced him to end his baseball career. Biddle returned to school in 1958 and received his B.A. degree in social work from the University of Wisconsin. For the next twenty-four years, Biddle was employed by the State of Wisconsin as a social worker in the corrections system. In 1996, Biddle founded Yesterday's Negro League Baseball Players LLC, an organization dedicated to supporting the surviving members of the Negro League baseball teams and defending their economic interests.
