Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Forty years ago Jack Roosevelt Robinson integrated major league baseball, and this powerful book recalls that accomplishment. Allen (Roger Maris, etc.) tells the Robinson story partlyin the words of those who remember orshockinglydon't remember the great player, who died in 1972. There are lengthy comments from family members like Robinson's sister, brother and widow, from those who worked or played for the Brooklyn Dodger organization, from stars of the old Negro League and of National League teams that played against Robinson. The interviews give testimony to the pioneer player's ordeal and to the racism that other black players also experienced and still experience on and off the field. Fans will find this a memorable volume. (May 29)
Library Journal
As the author vividly illustrates, Robinson's entry into the major leagues was more an historic than an athletic event. In tracing his career through college, the military, the minors and, ultimately, the majors, Allen draws on the personal recollections of former teammates, coaches, umpires, opponents, and owners. Their views of Robinson then and now offer an insightful commentary on the character of the man who, by breaking the color barrier, changed the face of the game. Though narrower in scope, this work is in the same league as Jules Tygiel's Baseball's Great Experiment ( LJ 7/83). A sensitive profile for popular collections. William H. Hoffman, Ft. Myers-Lee Cty. P.L., Fla.

    Disappointed

    Jackie Robinson: A Life Remembered, by Maury Allen, is a biography. I thought it was alright because the whole book was about people who knew or played with or against Jackie Robinson and all they did was talk about him. Most of the information was interesting but it got boring because the people who talked about Jackie all repeated the same things about him on how he was tough for being the first black player or how he was intimidating on the baseball field. The book takes place in Jackie Robinson¿s childhood home in Pasadena, California and on the many baseball fields he played on all during the 1900¿s. Jackie Robinson was the first African American to play baseball. Many people did not want him because he was black. People such as fans and players yelled racial slurs out at him. That did bother Jackie but he used it as motivation when he was playing. He wasn¿t allowed in some hotels either because of his race. Not only were people yelling at him, but coaches told there pitchers to hit Jackie with a pitch. Jackie couldn¿t deal with those pointless problems. Maury Allen wrote this book from a first person point of view. He wrote the book based on peoples opinions or thoughts about Jackie. The people who knew Jackie weren¿t afraid to say inappropriate language. They always talked about the racial names Jackie was called. I would recommend this book to anybody who doesn¿t know Jackie Robinson. Everybody should know who Jackie Robinson is. Everybody should know that he was the first black player in baseball history.
