Beschreibung

Describes the 1954 World Series, when two black players went with their division-winning teams, the New York Giants and the Cleveland Indians, to fight for the championship, seven years after Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier.

Autorentext

Bill Madden is the author of several books about the Yankees, including the "New York Times" Bestseller "Steinbrenner: The Last Lion of Baseball." For more than 30 years, he has covered the Yankees and Major League Baseball for the "New York Daily News." Madden is also the 2010 recipient of the Baseball Hall of Fame's J.G. Taylor Spink Award. He lives in New Jersey.



Klappentext

Set against the backdrop of a racially charged nation and a still predominantly all-white major league landscape, seven years removed from Jackie Robinson's breaking of the color line, "1954 "tells the story of the first time in major league history that two black players led their respective teams to the World Series.



Zusammenfassung
"Jackie Robinson heroically broke the color barrier in 1947. But how--and, in practice, when--did the integration of the sport actually occur? Bill Madden shows that baseball's famous 'black experiment' did not truly succeed until the coming of age of Willie Mays and the emergence of some star players--Larry Doby, Hank Aaron, and Ernie Banks--in 1954"--
