Dave Barnhill was one of the best Negro League pitchers of the 1940s. He is massively underappreciated. Here we have his contract for the 1940-41 Puerto Rican League season with the Humacao team. Barnhill and the team executives all signed it on October 19th, 1940. He made $30 per week, plus expenses. An absolute steal!!!
