Bob Luke, author of a new book on the Baltimore Elite Giants and one of my guests on Midday today, makes this suggestion in the epilogue: "A permanent memorial to the Baltimore Elite Giants would ensure that their days in Baltimore are remembered. Why not build a facsimile of Bugle Field [where they played in East Baltimore during the days of the Negro National League] large enough to show fans in the stands and players in Elite uniforms on the field? Placed at an entrance to Camden Yards, it would remind fans of all ages and hues that Baltimore was once home to one of the top teams in the Negro leagues."
