Ted Toles

Ted Toles, Jr., was born on December 4th, 1925, in Braceville to Ella and Theodore Barnes Toles, Sr. His love of sports started early, as he not only played baseball in high school but also boxed and participated in track and field. After graduating as valedictorian from Braceville High School in 1943, Toles began playing baseball professionally. He played for 4 Negro League teams from 1946 until 1950: the Pittsburgh Crawfords, the Cleveland Buckeyes, the Newark Eagles, and the Jacksonville Eagles. Toles then played for multiple Minor League teams including affiliates of the Cleveland Indians, the New York Yankees, and Philadelphia Athletics for 2 years. Throughout his career, he was known as a switch-hitter, outfielder, and left-handed pitcher. After his retirement from baseball in 1953, he worked for Republic/LTV Steel for over 30 years. He married his wife Jean on September 17, 1955, and the couple had 7 children together. He died at the age of 90 on April 4, 2016.
