Description
 
Lawrence S. Ritter (au); Richard Merkin (il). 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.”
