This beautifully written book is a treasure. It's for baseball lovers who want to know more about a neglected part of the game's history -- the role played by the Negro Leagues in the integration of baseball -- and about the players, sportswriters and owners who made it all happen. This book took me into the world of the Homestead Grays, who played in Griffith Stadium in Washington, D.C. -- the home of the Senators -- and into the lives of the black players who struggled to enter major league baseball. It's a window into baseball history and a great read.
