About the Project

Welcome to the Web site of the Negro Leagues Baseball Grave Marker Project.

The Project was started in 2003 by Jeremy Krock as an effort to provide proper grave markers to the unmarked graves of former Negro Leagues baseball players. Our mission is to honor the contributions of these players to history and the game of baseball.

Volunteers are needed to help locate the marked and unmarked graves of former Negro Leagues baseball players. For more information, please visit our Contact Us page.
