From the Publisher:
Thoroughly researched and compellingly written, this biography chronicles the life of the second black player to reach the Major Leagues, who joined the Indians 11 weeks after Jackie Robinson's first appearance with the Dodgers. A Hall of Famer and seven-time All Star, Larry Doby struggled with the same prejudices that Robinson faced, but with far less media attention and support.
