Jonathan Eig, senior special reporter to The Wall Street Journal and bestselling author of The Luckiest Man: The Life and Death of Lou Gehrig, chronicles the 1947 milestone season that not only changed the face of our national pastime, but significantly advanced the Civil rights movement in America.
Eig's compelling story touches all bases—how the St. Louis Cardinals nearly boycotted playing against an integrated team, and how Robinson was treated by opposing teams, sportswriters and fans across the country. Along with way, Eig shows how Robinson, baseball and America changed for the better that fateful season.
