Some of the best players in the history of baseball never played one inning in the majors. That is because Major League Baseball barred black players until 1947. So while Babe Ruth, Cy Young, and others were dominating the majors, stars such as Satchel Paige and Josh Gibson were making a name for themselves in the Negro Leagues. The Negro Baseball Leagues series covers the history of the Negro Leagues, their great pitchers and hitters, and the era of integration with Major League Baseball. Each book contains vivid descriptions of the legendary players and stories while also exploring the social impact of black baseball in segregated America. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. SportsZone is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
