Must Read: Baseball and Integration

Rebecca Alpert has penned a well researched account of the effort to integrate major league baseball.  Moreover, she has given an accurate accounting of Izzy Muchnick's role in arranging for 3 members of the Negro Leagues (including Jackie Robinson) to "try out" for the Boston Red Sox in 1945 -- 2 years prior to JR's appearance in a game as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers.  Check out her book entitled:  "Out of Left Field".
