Emily loves to play on her Little League baseball team. She visits the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York and learns about the Negro Leagues that were formed when black players were banned from major league teams. Emily’s report includes information about the early players, the greatest superstars, and the story of Jackie Robinson, who broke the “color line” in 1947. This title captures all the fun and excitement of baseball, while also exploring the serious issue of segregation in America.
Laura Driscoll lives in Middletown, Connecticut.
