The Pitch In The Soul of Baseball, the author Joe Posnanski spends a year traveling with the late Negro Leagues star and baseball ambassador Buck O’Neil.

Curveball Relentlessly positive O’Neil (who, as a Kansas City Monarchs manager, taught Ernie ”Let’s Play Two” Banks to be cheerful) gets steamed when NYC-based radio host Troi ”Star” Torain starts trashing Jackie Robinson.

Final Score A moving elegy for both the Negro Leagues and one of the game’s biggest personalities.
