Wilker Mickey Stubblefield is a former Negro League Baseball pitcher. He played one season in the Negro League in 1948, as a starting pitcher. He started 2 games for the Monarchs and completed both of them. His nickname was "The Mayfield Mounder."
Stubblefied was signed as a free agent to the Mayfield Clothiers of the Kentucky-Illinois-Tennessee League in 1952. He was the first "black" player signed to play in the league. Out of safety concerns, Mickey was only allowed to pitch in front of his hometown fans. He was later drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates after integration, but never made it to Major League Baseball.
Satchel Paige taught him how to throw his curveball.
