ABC's history glorious, valuable

by robert d h on Jun 30, 2011

Paul Debono's book The Indianapolis ABCs was interesting as a quick read but all the more valuable to me for the research. I did a book (The Bill Cook Story -- Ready, Fire, Aim) that included references to Bill and Gayle Cook's astounding renovation work done at the French Lick and West Baden hotels. I wish I had seen Mr. Debono's book first, because he told me some things I didn't know about the link between baseball teams at the hotels (particularly West Baden) and the rich role that the ABCs played in baseball's indefensibly slow passage from segregation to the integration signaled by Jackie Robinson's arrival. I am now involved with the new Monroe County Sports Hall of Fame, and Mr. Debono's work will be invaluable to me and to us as we advance with it, again because of things I learned from this book. It's a treasurepiece of history. Bob Hammel
