Born in 1899 in Washington DC. James Henry Winters was a pitcher in the Negro leagues from 1919-1933. Winters, who was also known as "Jesse" and "Nip," was one of the top left-handed pitchers of his day. Known for his wild style and pitching speed, he began his baseball career playing for the Norfolk Stars. Winters played for a number of notable teams including the Atlantic City Bacharach Giants, Homestead Grays, Baltimore Black Sox, and Washington Pilots. After retiring from baseball, Winters married Sarah Smith of Hockessin and moved into the Smith family home not far from this site. He worked as a laborer at Hockessin Supply Company until his death in 1971.
