The Negro Baseball Leagues

After spending a few years trying to write a baseball book, sports columnist for the Kansas City Star, Joe Posnanski lucked into a story that had to be told. Buck O’Neil is the iconic Negro Leagues player and manager. During the last year of his life, O’Neil joined Posnanski on a road trip from Kansas City to New York to Minneapolis. The Soul of Baseball recounts O’Neil’s memories of a time when baseball was more like a game and less like a business.
