In this personal history of the Negro Leagues, Stanley Glenn gives
an intimate and in-depth look at the daily trials and tribulations
of a Negro League Baseball player. With wisdom, wit and
perspective, Glenn recalls the indignities he and his teammates
suffered during the days of Jim Crow, a time when they were denied
gas for their vehicles or even a decent place to stay as they went
"barnstorming" around the country, playing against and alongside
some of the greatest baseball players of all time.
Glenn's story illuminates the strength and determination of
black ball players. In spite of the forces against them, they
persevered for love of the game. And despite the adversities these
men faced, they enjoyed the journey and came away with treasured
memories and lifelong friendships. Through his blend of humorous
anecdotes, inspiring words of wisdom, and colorful imagery, Mr.
Glenn wonderfully conveys the bittersweet paradox that was the
Negro League Baseball experience.
