Devoted to their craft, the New York Black Yankees were not known to complain. At a point in the 1930s, their rigorous schedule had the Yankees playing back to back doubleheaders which happened 350 miles apart. The Yankees were not going to let anything delay their arrival. After one of their busses broke down, nine of the team's sixteen players had to crowd into a separate car to ensure that the show would go on. It did indeed, and the Yankees got to their destination approximately twenty minutes before their scheduled start time. After warming up in only five minutes, the New York Black Yankees showcased their unrelenting fighting spirit and won both games of the doubleheader.
