For "Diamonds in the Dust," a photo essay for The Undefeated on the ESPN website about the Negro Leagues, Gerry Melendez of ESPN photographed Howard Scott, 66, left, and Edward "Pap" McGowan, 68, watching a game in Antreville, S.C. "Both played in what they consider the best era of black baseball. McGowan started in the league in 1957 and played for 49 years. 'We were straight-out country boys,' he said. 'You just played wherever there were games.' McGowan says many great players lost their chance to play professionally because they had to work the cotton fields. 'Yeah, that's why I might have missed my chance,' he says."
