Review:

One of baseball's real gentlemen and perhaps its only true revolutionary, Branch Rickey, as president of the Brooklyn Dodgers, made it his mission to change the game--and with it America--by obliterating the color line in 1947. As it took an extraordinary man of will in Jackie Robinson to bear the on-the-field brunt of Rickey's daring, it took a man of equal resolve and courage to conceive and implement the plan in the first place. Rickey, creator as well of baseball's farm system, left a giant and enduring legacy. This slim volume of epigrams and observations--on character, attitude, and baseball itself--compiled from his letters, notes, and personal papers is a treasure trove of good sense, keen insight, and, indeed, some genuine inspiration, a true reflection of the singular man who penned them.
