All Star: How Larry Doby Smashed the Color Barrier in Baseball
Blank Image _ Clear Button

A beautifully illustrated book following Larry Doby's history-making career of many firsts in baseball. You'll learn about the image where Steve Gromek gleefully embraces Larry after a big win, and how that image shocked the world. You'll learn that it took years for the major leagues to fully integrate and the Boston Red Sox were the last. Favorite quote, "The world doesn't change all by itself. People change the world."
