    Sweet Book on Negro League Legend!

    This was one of the best reads I've had in the summer of 2010. The history of Satchel and other prominent Negro Leaguers is captured here with excellent detail. Great game description, storytelling, and word-painting by Tye. If you want to learn more about Negro League Baseball and details of Satchel off the field as well - this book is for you and for any baseball history buff for that matter. Go get it!

    ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED! Terrific read!

    Great piece of baseball history

    I bought this book for my dad as a Fathers' Day present. Baseball has always been a commonality between us, and this insight into one of the greatest players to ever play the game was outstanding. I had read the book and chose to give it to my father, and he truly liked it. My dad had the chance to actually see this enigmatic character play when he was a kid, and this book added a different perspective to the history of baseball, the US and the sad part that was segregation. Paige was incredible, and this book put him as a historical character in the midst of some strange times, when baseball was a different game as dictated by different social and economic factors
