Description
As general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, Branch Rickey defied racism on and off the field to bring Jackie Robinson into the major leagues in 1947, changing baseball forever. Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist Jimmy Breslin provides an inimitable portrait of Rickey and his times, including such colorful characters as Dodgers' owner George McLaughlin, diamond greats George Sisler and Dizzy Dean, and Robinson himself, whose extraordinary talent was equaled by his poise in the face of intolerance.

"This [2011] biography by legendary newspaper columnist Jimmy Breslin is peppery, original, opinionated and irresistible ... a seriously entertaining book."—Chicago Tribune

"You might read a longer baseball book this year, but you won't read a better one."—Sports Illustrated
