Summary
Kadir Nelson explains the history of the Negro National League that played baseball from the 1920s to 1947. Through this history, he shares the story of amazing men who endured horrible circumstances to do what they loved: play ball
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
