Catching Dreams: My Life in the Negro Baseball Leagues (Sports and Entertainment)

No reviews
Robinson's vivid first-hand account of his 25-year career in Negro League baseball offers a rare and personal perspective of the men, the teams, and the times that shaped this uniquely American subculture. He chronologically traces his nationwide path through the 1920's, 30's, and 40's from playing catcher for obscure industrial teams to barnstorming with Hall-of-Famer Satchel Paige, for whom he caught for two years. Embroidering his story with the threads of black society, he provides a glimpse of life as a black athlete in a racially divided nation. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
