Robinson, the only man to be named most valuable player in both major leagues and the first black manager in baseball, scores another triumph with this book, the most forthright sports volume in several years. With coauthor Stainback (Snake, etc.), Robinson discusses racism in the diamond sport, which he experienced in the minor leagues (he could not stay in the same hotels as his teammates), in the major leagues (he found virtually no off-the-field contact between black and white players) and in the front office. He also deals with the problems of drug abuse and cheating by pitchers and batters, both of which he considers widespread and about which he claims that those in positions of power do nothing. The memoir is certain to be talked about. Photos not seen by PW. Author tour.
