Perhaps baseball's greatest hitter, Gibson was known as "the black Babe Ruth." In this illuminating biography, William Brashler introduces an authentic American sports hero and recaptures the mood and style, the excitement and poignance of a world of black baseball that has vanished from the American scene. "A balanced account that...brings him into clear focus as one of the outstanding baseball players of his era."-New York Times Book Review.
William Brashler is also the editor of The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars and Motor Kings, the highly regarded novel of a touring black baseball team in the pre-Jackie Robinson era, as well as two other novels, City Dogs and Giancana. He lives and writes in Chicago.
