Summary
When modern baseball fans think of African American players, they may think of Ken Griffey Jr., Derek Jeter, or Jason Heyward. But what about the black stars who didn't play Major League Baseball? In the early 1900s, professional baseball was mostly segregated--black players were not allowed in the Major Leagues. The Negro Leagues provided an alternative for African American players for decades before MLB began to integrate in 1947. Author Matt Doeden highlights the fascinating history, greatest moments, and biggest stars of the Negro Leagues. Read the incredible stories of some of professional baseball's greatest players
