Negro Leagues Baseball Stamp: Know any connections?

On July 15, Negro Leagues Baseball will be honored on a U.S. postage stamp. The First-Day-Of-Issue ceremony will be held at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, MO.  

It turns out the Postal Service has an employee who played in the Negro Leagues. His name is Cleophus Brown. He is 82 years young and an MVS truck driver in Birmingham, AL.

Do you know of any other postal employees, active or retired, who played in the Negro Leagues? Are there any other employees who are descendants of Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson, Jackie Robinson, or any other players of the Negro Leagues.
