Though they played in the years before Rube Foster formed the first Negro League, the St. Paul Gophers and their bitter crosstown rivals, the Minneapolis Keystones, had the talent, bench depth, and determination to rival many of those later, better known teams. (The Gophers, in fact, beat Chicago's celebrated Leland Giants in 1909, laying claim to blackball's western championship.) Focusing on these two clubs, author Peterson lays out the early history of African American baseball in the Upper Midwest. Included are new statistics and more than 50 rarely seen photographs.

About the Author:

Visual artist and teacher Todd Peterson lives in Kansas City, Missouri. His work has been published in Baseball Research Journal and Black Ball and he has exhibited both nationally and internationally.

Review:

"I am tremendously impressed with Todd Peterson's success in finding so many game results and biographical information on black players of the Minneapolis-St.Paul teams of this era. Peterson has done future baseball generations of the upper Midwest a great service in writing their history"--Nine; "Peterson has opened a door which had been locked for over 100 years, and discovers plenty of surprises inside...Peterson approached this work as a passionate craftsman. It's a research tour de force, richly detailed...If you're serious about baseball and want the keys to an important, underexplored part of the game's history, you might wish to pick up a copy"--Outsider Baseball Bulletin.
