Satch, Dizzy & Rapid Robert: The Wild Saga of Interracial Baseball Before Jackie Robinson - Gay, Timothy M

Historian Gay unearths long-forgotten exhibitions where Satchel Paige, Dizzy Dean, and Bob Feller dueled, and he tells the story of their pioneering escapades in this engaging book. These often obscure contests helped hasten the end of Jim Crow baseball, paving the way for the game's integration.
