The Men and Times of the Negro Baseball LeaguesBook - 1995
"As handsome a book on the Negro Leagues as any child could hope to see, this focuses on 21 players, from Smokey Joe Williams to Cool Papa Bell to Jackie Robinson. Ritter writes with feeling about the history of the Negro Leagues, how Negro baseball differed from the majors, and what it contributed to the sport, but the main focus is on individual players...Illustrations are outstanding."--Booklist. "A worthwhile addition to any young ballplayer's library."--Publisher's Weekly.
