General Information
Description
Carl Long is a former outfielder in Negro league and minor league baseball who, along with Frank Washington, broke the color barrier in the Carolina League city of Kinston, North Carolina. Long made his debut for the Kinston Eagles on April 17, 1956. During the year, he hit .291 with 18 home runs and 111 runs batted in. The Carolina League itself had been integrated in 1951 by Percy Miller Jr. of the Danville Leafs. The 111 RBI tallied by Long in 1956 has been equaled but never surpassed by any subsequent Kinston players. Long's professional debut came with the Birmingham Black Barons of the Negro American League in 1952. That year, he led the NAL in Triples with 8. He stayed with Birmingham through the 1953 season. That year, he was selected to the Negro League East-West All-Star game. He started for the East team as their third baseman. He went hitless with four at bat appearances in the All-Star game. In 1954, he was signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates and was sent to their minor league team, the St. Jean Canadians of the Provincial League. During 1955, Long played for the Billings Mustangs in the Pioneer League and also saw some action for Phoenix in the Arizona-Mexico League.
