Please read our conflict of interest guidelines. This strongly discourages editors from placing links on wikipedia to websites they are affiliated with. Also please look over our external link guidelines. This site doesn't meet the guidelines. It is a combination between a blog site, a fan site, and a search engine: all of which are discouraged unless the article is specifically about that particular website. Also, please do not misuse the {{Official}} template. Doing so is misleading. Blackfives is not Cumberland Posey's official website.
You are welcome to use the information within the blackfives website to add text to our wikipedia articles. Then you can (and should) use the website to reference the material. See our pages on verifiability and citing sources for more info on how to do this. ThemFromSpace 20:53, 12 March 2010 (UTC)


I have rearranged the article with basketball and baseball sections in that order, which is chronological with overlap. I have streamlined and tweaked everything except the baseball section which I have not touched at all. It's now titled "Homestead Grays" because it covers nothing else. It needs work including attention to basic facts. For example, it's apparent that Posey didn't organized the Grays in 1910; they later became a leading or the leading club under Posey. --P64 (talk) 23:46, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

MLB coach[edit]

Regarding Category:Major League Baseball coaches: if Posey belongs, his coaching should be covered in the text with a reference, because it is notable and dubitable that a black man who died in 1946 was a coach in organized baseball. It wouldn't be unique but readers must wonder about it and may doubt the entire article if it is not supported.(I have deleted the category only because I don't know how to mark a category "disputed" or "needs citation".) --P64 (talk) 22:56, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
