Original caption:
Negro Marines prepare for action. Breaking a tradition of 167 years, the U.S. Marine Corps started enlisting Negroes on June 1, 1942. The first class of 1,200 Negro volunteers began their training three months later as members of the 51st Composite Defense Battalion at Montford Point, a section of the 200 square mile Marine Base, Camp Lejeune, at New River, North Carolina. Evidence of the lack of racial friction may be seen in the sports program at the camp. On the baseball team Negro enlistees and white non-com officers are teammates. Camp Lejeune has its own baseball league, with the Montford Point team a strong contender for championship honors

"People say to us, ‘Oh, your players are so well-mannered, so poised and disciplined,’ and [I’m] like ‘What do you expect? Compared to what?’ These kids are baseball players. Some of them are third-generation members of this organization. It’s not, ‘Look at these little black kids playing ball,’ with us. We’re just playing baseball, something we do all of the time. It’s a way of life for us."

- Mike Kelley, district administrator for Little League District 4
