Artist paints mural of Toni Stone


MARTIN LUTHER KING, JUNIOR DAY IN A MEANINGFUL WAY. SO HE GOT OUT HIS PAINTBRUSH AND STARTED PAINTING A MURAL OF TONI STONE. HER MURAL IS BETWEEN THOSE OF JACKIE ROBINSON AND BABE RUTH. OUR KEVIN RADER GOT A CHANCE TO ASK HIM.. WHY HE DECIDED TO PAINT HER. “TONI STONE WAS THE FIRST WOMEN TO PLAY IN THE OLD NEGRO LEAGUES. SHE HIT 243 OR 234. SHE PLAYED WITH HALL OF FAMERS LIKE WILLIE MAYS, BUCK O’NEIL AND GOT A HIT OFF OF SATCHEL PAGE. THAT’S PRETTY COOL SO.” AS YOU CAN SEE STONE ALSO PLAYED FOR A TIME FOR THE OLD INDIANAPOLIS CLOWNS. IF YOU WANT TO CHECK IT OUT.. YOU CAN SEE THE MURAL AT DIAMOND DYNAMICS IN BLOOMINGTON.
