From the 1920s until Jackie Robinson was brought into Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, there were really three major leagues in America, the American, the National, and the Negro Leagues. The Negro League was full of great ballplayers who weren’t allowed to play in the other leagues, but who loved to play ball, and played it incredibly well against bad odds. Illus. with full-color oil paintings.

I checked this out as an audio book there was mention of all the great paintings. I was delighted to see that the last disc in the audio book was actually a disc of all these paintings. With the history we have in KC with the Monarchs this was a nice "read".
