"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
With archival photos, text, anecdotes, and memorabilia, this handsome portrait of the Negro Leagues presents some of the greatest ballplayers in the history of the game who never played in the majors. Classic shots of legends such as Satchel Paige (in full wind-up), Josh Gibson, and Buck O'Neil are poignant reminders of what professional baseball might have been without the color barrier.From Publishers Weekly:
A connoisseur of diamond memorabilia, New York Daily News sportswriter Chadwick here does for black baseball what he has done for major league baseball in general: encourage its enthusiasts to appreciate its nuances. Because the so-called Negro Leagues, which flourished between 1887 and 1947, were only sketchily covered by the white press, Chadwick has assembled his impressive collection of photos primarily from former players, fans and sports historians. To the pictures of teams and individual stars--including Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson and Cool Papa Bell--he has added such memorabilia as programs, tickets and posters. Although the text is well researched, it adds little information to works like R. Peterson's Only the Ball Was White ; the 170 illustrations, on the other hand, make this volume indispensable.
