Description
Paying homage to some of the Negro Leagues' all-time greats, unsung heroes, and long-forgotten stars, here former New York Giant Monte Irvin selects the top five players at each position and the top five managers, owners, pioneers, or organizers. Along with dozens of black and white photographs, here are the Hall of Famer's vivid reminiscences of such players as Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, Satchel Paige, Roy Campanella, "Smokey" Joe Williams, Josh Gibson, Henry Aaron, and "Cool Papa" Bell. At the time of his death in January 2016, Irvin was the last of the Negro Leagues players, a fact that can only add poignancy to his engaging, anecdotal history.
