Featuring lively verse, fascinating facts, and archival photographs, here is a celebration of the Negro Leagues and the great players who went unrecognized in their time.

Imagine that you are an outstanding baseball player but banned from the major leagues. Imagine that you are breaking records but the world ignores your achievements. Imagine having a dream but no chance to make that dream come true. This is what life was like for African American baseball players before Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball's color barrier. Meet Josh Gibson, called "the black Babe Ruth"; who hit 75 home runs in 1931; James "Cool Papa" Bell, the fastest man in baseball; legendary Satchel Paige, who once struck out 24 batters in a single game; and, of course, Jackie Robinson, the first Black player in Major League Baseball, and one of the greatest players of all time.

With a foreword by baseball legend Buck O'Neil,
 a first baseman who became a coach in the Negro American League and the first African American coach in the MLB.
