In 1936, the New York Yankees wanted to test a hot prospect named Joe DiMaggio to see if he was ready for the big leagues. They knew just the ballplayer to call, Satchel Paige, the best pitcher anywhere, black or white. For the game, Paige joined a group of amateur African-American players, and they faced off against a team of white major leaguers plus young DiMaggio.
This book tells the story of baseball's greatest heroes, Joe DiMaggio and Satchel Paige, and how on one day in 1936, rookie DiMaggio proves himself as a major league player and Paige proves the injustice of segregated baseball.
