Description

Painstakingly researched and documented, this volume is a comprehensive, year-by-year reference to the important - yet often obscure - dates in Negro League history. From the Negro Leagues' organized beginning in 1920 through their steep decline immediately after Jackie Robinson's 1947 breaking of the color barrier, entries cover league meetings, noteworthy games, the commentary of columnists, and important events on and off the field. Controversies that defined the experience of black baseball organizers - such as player rights disputes, failure to adhere to league schedules and violations of league rules - are also included here.
