100+ Page Biographies of Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees with Information That Will Never Go Out of Date Shut out of the major leagues, African American players picked up games wherever they could until the official Negro leagues were started. Featuring information that will never go out of date, these six biographies paint the racial and political landscape of the first half of the last century, while featuring the life stories of some of the Negro leagues'--indeed, all of baseball's--greatest players. Satchel Paige was one of the most talented, enduring, and entertaining pitchers, black or white, ever to play the game of baseball. Legendary white players such as Dizzy Dean and Joe DiMaggio claimed he was the best pitcher they ever went up against. His career spanned thirty years, dozens of teams, and several leagues, including the Negro and integrated major leagues. The book's lavish illustrations trace the wild twists and turns of Paige's career while beautifully capturing a moment in American history that was as troubled as it was triumphant.
