Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Rob Ruck's Raceball: How the Major Leagues Colonized the Black and Latin Game:
"Ruck's gutsy account of this major sport with a tarnished past is thought provoking, arguing that "the integration of Black America has cost the price of its soul plus a crucial part of its social cohesion."
Publishers Weekly

"A profound look at why Latinos have replaced African American baseball players, helping the reader understand the game as a business. Definitely a must-read for those who love the game, regardless of origin, race, or ethnicity."
Juan Marichal, MLB Hall of Famer
