Reviews
"The book will interest local historians and dedicated fans of the history of minor league ball...recommended"--Choice; "extraordinarily informative...an exceptionally impressive and unique history...recommended"--Midwest Book Review; "a precise detailed account...makes many original and the significant contributions to the lore of the club and to blackball history in general. Lutzke clearly did his homework...well-researched and referenced...a heartfelt testament to an exceptional, though long forgotten, outfit. Lutzke's tour-de-force is the very complete history of a nineteenth century black ball club, and a welcome addition to McFarland's ever growing canon of Negro League team chronicles"--The Inside Game (SABR Deadball Era Committee Newsletter); "the author has done an impressive amount of research and written a fascinating story of a little-known chapter in the history of baseball"--Michigan in Books.
