Milton Hall - Player
Inducted in 1982
Milton Hall was perhaps the best African-American pitcher to come from the Eastern Shore. Milton attended school in Oaksville and was an active member of his church. He started pitching baseball at the age of 15 with the Oaksville Eagles in 1927. Milton was once offered a contract with the Baltimore Elite Giants of the old Negro League when they often competed with major league teams. He played baseball for 42 years, and managed Oaksville for 20 of those years. Unfortunately, there are no records from those days.
Milton was employed by the Maryland State roads for 40 years until his death at the age of 66 in 1978. He was inducted into the Eastern Shore Hall of Fame as a player with the first group of selections in 1982.
