Click to enlarge

"Here are profiles of some of the greatest athletes who ever played the game of baseball.  But their careers were in the shadows of organized ball.  They labored in the Negro Leagues, formed near the turn of the century because African-Americans were not allowed in the Major Leagues from 1898 until 1947.  The conditions and sometimes the crowds were second-class.  But the talent was monumental.

In Blackball Superstars, we meet and get to know these sometimes overlooked but not-forgotten stars of a bygone era."

Players covered include: Leroy "Satchel" Paige, Walter "Buck" Leonard, William "Judy" Johnson, John Henry "Pop" Lloyd, Ray "Dandy" Dandridge, Willie "Bill" Foster, Joshua "Josh" Gibson, James "Cool Papa" Bell, Oscar Charleston, Andrew "Rube" Foster, Leon Day, and Willie "The Devil" Wells.
