Book Review of 'Black Baseball's Last Team Standing'

Published By: H-Net Reviews | Published Date: June , 2020

The book is extraordinarily well researched, drawing from newspaper accounts in almost thirty different states, and probably the most comprehensive record of the Black Barons and their significance in the Negro League. It is a book that helps provide greater depth to our understanding of African American history, particular black baseball. Review of William J. Plott's 'Black Baseball's Last Team Standing: The Birmingham Black Barons, 1919-1962'. Jefferson: McFarland, 2019. 345 pp. $49.95, paper, ISBN 978-1-4766-7788-0.
