Summary
The story of Negro League baseball is the story of gifted athletes and determined owners; of racial discrimination and international sportsmanship; of fortunes won and lost; of triumphs and defeats on and off the field. It is a perfect mirror for the social and political history of black America in the first half of the twentieth century. Most of all, the story of the Negro Leagues is about hundreds of unsung heroes who overcame segregation and other issues
Summary
Satchel Paige, Hank Aaron, Josh Gibson, Jackie Robinson. These men are some of baseball's all-time greatest players, but in the days of segregation, none of them could get a job with a professional team. In a voice that sounds like an old ballplayer telling a tale, this book's narrator tells all about how and why baseball's Negro Leagues began, how their brand of baseball was unique, what players' lives on the road were like, and much more. -- Description by Dawn Towery
