Rube Foster, Cool Papa Bell, Monte Irvin, Buck Leonard...they are some of the greatest players to ever play the game; so why have so few people heard of them? Because they never played in the MLB; they were the heroes of a baseball league often forgotten: The Negro League. This book traces the history of the league from the early days of Professional Black Baseball and the formation of leagues to Post-Integration decline. HistoryCaps is an imprint of BookCaps Study Guides. With each book, a brief period of history is recapped.
