A very interesting history of the first integrated baseball in Birmingham AL in 1964. The summer after 4 little black girls where killed one Sunday morning as they prepared for services when their church was bombed by the Klan. The owner of the team - a well to do white business man - was not a Klansman but knew some - and one knocked on his door the night before the first game and warned him not to let the game be played. But played it was, and the fans were better for the baseball, and America was a better nation too.
