Mile High Green Elephants
DENVER BROWNS AFFILIATE
THE MILE HIGH GREEN ELEPHANTS
aka "THE DENVER GREEN" were named in tribute to the Denver White Elephants...
A little FYI on how our name was derived; named after The Denver White Elephants who were a barnstorming baseball team comprised of African Americans. One might call them the “Jackie Robinson” of sports teams. A semi-pro squad nicknamed “The Baseball Wizards of the West”, they started playing five years before the formation of the Negro National League. In addition to playing games around the West, they participated in The Denver Post Tournament, which in the team's final season, became the first integrated baseball competition in the U.S.
The Denver White Elephants flourished from 1915-35, owned by A.H.W. Ross, a black businessman (Five Points' Rossonian Hotel was named after him).
