    Negro league baseball players didn’t always get the respect that major leaguers received. And yet many—including Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, and Roy Campanella—quickly became standouts in the major leagues after 1947. Others didn’t get to prove their mettle in the majors at all—or not until long past their prime. Leroy “Satchel” Paige mixed his blazing fastball with twenty-nine other devastating pitches to win forty-two games and strike out 402 batters in 1936. Credited with 175 stolen bases in one year, speedster James “Cool Papa” Bell delighted fans by scoring from first base on a bunt. And powered by steroid-free meals, Josh Gibson hit seventy-five home runs in 1931—with one blast sailing 580 feet and another shattering a seat in Yankee Stadium. New York Times bestselling author Carole Boston Weatherford compiles an enthralling summary of Negro league history that includes fascinating tidbits about prominent pitchers, hitters, utility players, teams, and traditions.

    The memoir from the greatest relief pitcher of all time While he is listed along with Ruth, Mantle, Gehrig, and DiMaggio as a top-five Yankee of all time, Rivera is also a man of God and family whose contributions to charity and community ensure a meaningful life long after his time as the Closer is over. He is the man who has intimidated thousands of batters by merely opening a bullpen door. Now he will tell his story for the first time: the championships, the bosses (including the Boss), the rivalries, and the struggles of being a Latino baseball player in the United States and of maintaining Christian values in professional athletics. The twelve-time all-star will discuss what it’s like to run up to that mound with the game—or the season—squarely on his shoulders.
