Reviews

"Weatherford has collected a wealth of information and memorabilia from the earliest days through the Leagues' demise in 1963. . . . One doesn't need to be a baseball fan to be fascinated." --Kirkus Reviews

"An engaging overview, richly augmented by archival photographs. . . . This title succeeds as a thoughtful introduction, capturing both the significance of the Negro Leagues and the accomplishments of its great players." --School Library Journal

"Public and school libraries will want to add this to their collections, as material on the Negro Leagues is fairly scarce for this age group." --Library Media Connection
