A highly interesting chronicle of Major League Baseball, from the time of Jackie Robinson’s entry as the first African American player in 1947 to the rise of free agency and the players’ strike of 1994–95. . . The brisk pace of Soderholm-Difatte’s narrative will surely capture the attention and imagination of fans who lived through this era, as well as informing those who want to recognize the issues that made the times “tumultuous”! Highly Recommended.
