Indian Summer: The Forgotten Story of Louis Sockalexis, the First Native American in Major League Baseball
Brian McDonald (au)
More than a century ago, on a remote reservation, a “natural” athletic talent was born who would change the face of baseball -- literally. The Indian, as he was labeled by friend & foe alike, caused a commotion in city after city as all wanted a piece of the first Native Amer. to play in the Majors. For one sensational season he was the toast of Cleveland & the Nat. League, his appeal so strong that there’s little doubt he inspired the name his old club carries today. This is the story of Louis Francis Sockalexis, grandson of a Penobscot chief, who endured a firestorm of publicity while blazing a trail for such sports heroes as Jim Thorpe & Jackie Robinson. Unfortunately, Sockalexis sealed his own fate with alcohol & other temptations.
