George A. Sweatt Park is named for Humboldt native, George Sweatt, born December 12, 1893. He graduated from Humboldt High School in 1912. Following military service in World War I, he attended Pittsburg State University from 1920 to 1922. A good student and all-around athlete, Sweatt earned a teacher's certificate and became that school's first black athlete to receive a letter in football, basketball, and track. In 1922, Sweatt began a seven-year professional baseball career in the Negro National League. He played for four years with the Kansas City Monarchs and three years with the Chicago American Giants, appearing in the first four Negro World Series. Following his baseball career, Sweatt worked for the U.S. Postal Service until his retirement in 1957. He remained active in coaching and youth organizations until his death on July 19, 1983.
