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.
