Sport is not always a metaphor . . . but in this instance the story of race and the Red Sox is an exceedingly accurate mirror of the story of race and Boston, and thus race and America. —Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post

“One of the best baseball books I have ever read, and in fact one of the best non-fiction books I have read in years. To simply call it a baseball book is to do it a disservice, in that people interested in American history, race relations in America, and simply human nature might not read it, which would be their loss.” —Lisa Winston, USA Today’s Sports Weekly

Shut Out…is the first book detailing and analyzing the racial problems of the Red Sox…it is required reading for anyone who cares about the history of racial prejudice and the game of baseball.” —Louis P. Masur, The Nation
