From the Introduction: “For there was a time to be remembered when men played the game for the enjoyment of the game-not to get rich from it. And, of course, here, are stories about the Negro Leagues, a segregated poor and distant relation to the major leagues of the day and more specifically about one of the league’s most dedicated and honest participants-William Julius ‘Judy’ Johnson. Delaware is indeed fortunate to of been the home of this magnificent yet humble man whose baseball talent was only surpassed by his love of the game and his unceasing drive to never do anything to sully its reputation or to bring any dishonor to the field. Judy was a player’s player, always putting the benefit of all above the needs of self.” Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1 lb 14 oz. Category: Biography & Autobiography; Signed by Author.
