         Archie Ware was born on June 19, 1918 in Greenville, Florida. He was
a left handed first baseman for the Buckeyes from 1942-1948, all the years
the team was in existence.  He also played briefly in 1941 for the Chicago
American Giants.
         Information about Ware is limited except for his baseball statistics.
He played in four Negro League All Star Games from 1944-1946 and was

American League in batting in 1946.
