    Good thumbnail sketch of great baseball players.

    This should be read by everybody, not just baseball or sports fans. Without saying it, it shows how we as a nation treated people of color and how far we have come in that regard. I think most would be surprised at the number of players of color who made it into the major leagues; how great these players truly were - including handling their treatment as people.

    Heroes of the Negro Leagues - Must Read for Every True Baseball Fan

    This book is a must read for every baseball fan. Very informative in an entertaining way. The DVD with the book is a bit old, so many of the people interviewed are no longer alive, but it is still a great watch. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in baseball or even just the racial issues of this country.
