Description

In 1954, Nat Peeples became history's first African American to play baseball in the tradition-rich Southern Association. Jackie Robinson once told Peeples that his task would be harder than No. 42's, because Peeples would have to play in the Deep South. Now, for the first time in book form, here is Peeples' story, from his humble beginnings in Memphis to his tours with black baseball's greatest players, to that historic night in Mobile, Alabama, in 1954.show more
