Summary
"Sixty-six former Negro League players tell what it was like to play professional baseball for such legendary teams as the Kansas City Monarchs, Pittsburgh Crawfords and Birmingham Black Barons. With careers that span the decades between the 1920s and 1960s, these men share their memories of not only Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige, Oscar Charleston, and Cool Papa Bell, but other, lesser-known but equally respected ballplayers: Ted "Double Duty" Radcliffe, Henry Kimbro, Willie Wells, Ralph Johnson and Hilton Smith. They relate their encounters with hostile crowds and recount their life on the road, where they slept on the bus, endured a regimen of saltines and sardines and played injured - all for the love of baseball and the sake of competition."--Jacket
