Description
"Larry Doby was the first black player in the American League, going to the Cleveland Indians just 11 weeks after Jackie Robinson joined the National League's Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. Aware of Mr. Doby's neglect by biographers, Mr. Moore, who has been a fan of his subject ever since he heard the Doby legend, seeks to give him recognition. . . . Mr. Moore used records, interviews and a clear narrative style to make his points (what is more persuasive in sports than an athlete's record! what is more animated than public statements and their refutations!), and gives voice to some of Mr. Doby's severest critics. There is an objectivity in tone, as well as a scholarly approach and copious footnotes. Pride Against Prejudice is a tribute to both its author and Larry Doby." The New York Times Book Review
