Meet Buck Leonard, one of America's greatest baseball players, who escaped worldwide fame and glory simply because of his color. Teens who may not be aware that segregation laws in the first half of twentieth-century America prohibited African Americans from participating in major league baseball will learn about the racial and political landscape of America during this time, providing a context for the story of one of the most gracious--and greatest--baseball players who ever lived.
