NEGRO LEAGUE'S 75TH

By Published on .

McDonald's Corp. and the Negro League Baseball Museum take the field Feb. 13 for a promotion tied to the league's 75th anniversary.

The promotion handled by Simon Marketing, New York, opens in Detroit, Philadelphia and Baltimore. It will run until mid-March. McDonald's may expand it this summer to 17 other markets where the league had teams. Major League Baseball is a co-sponsor.
