About this title


Some of the greatest ballplayers of all times never got a chance to play in the major leagues. Unwritten rules once forced African Americans to form their own teams, & it took years before they got the recognition they deserved. In this book, meet Hall-of-Fame legends like Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson, & Cool Papa Bell, & learn how Jackie Robinson finally paved the way for Negro League stars like Hank Aaron & Willie Mays to take their rightful place in the majors. A NCSS-CBC Notable Children s Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies. Color portraits. As handsome a book on the Negro leagues as any child could hope to see. A worthwhile addition to any young ballplayer s library.

He collaborated with fellow baseball historian Donald Honig on The Image of Their Greatness and The 100 Greatest Baseball Players of All Time but is best known for The Glory of Their Times, one of the most famous sports books ever published.
