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