9781466200753: Batboy on the Worst Team Ever!

The amazing true story of the losingest team in baseball - and the very first ball club to break the color barrier in the Old South!

Through the long hot summer of 1951, the Graniteers sweat out a 14 – 96 season and 10 Year old Bobby McRainey relates the day to day struggles as batboy on a losingest team ever!

New coaches, a name change and even ‘Black Cat Night at Granite Falls Stadium' cannot change the Graniteers' luck. And, when Bobby finds an unhittable ‘Cuban’ pitcher is really an American born black man, he wrestles with the unfairness of "Whites Only" baseball. But with five games remaining and nothing left to lose, Bobby's 1951 club signs 5 Negro Leaguers and integrates Southern Baseball. And, the batboy discovers that even a losing team can have immortal moments.

"There are some very pleasant moments (and perhaps even a Denzel Washington movie) in this novel ... based on the incredible true story of the worst team in Baseball History that became the first Southern team to break the color barrier."
