    Assuming what was written about the Black Diamonds was true in the 2001 ESPN article (http://espn.go.com/page2/s/caple/lehigh/010806.html) then those guys showed toughness not often found in most minor league players and coaches. Do you have any more information on the unique “human interest stories” of those who played for the Black Diamonds & Road Warriors?
