The U.S. Mint's Commemorative Coin Program for 2022 includes a series of coins dedicated to the Negro National League (NNL), the first successful professional baseball league for African American and Latin American athletes. The NNL was established in 1920, during an era of segregated play of the sport, founded by former baseball player Andrew "Rube" Foster. Foster was posthumously inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1981, the first pioneer or executive of the NNL to receive such a recognition.
