Description

Biddy Owens is the batboy for the Birmingham Black Barons, one of the best teams in the Negro Leagues. His journal covers the games, the grueling road trips, racial segregation, and day-to-day life in Birmingham during this pivotal time in American history.

There's nothing seventeen-year-old Biddy Owens wants more than to play baseball, but the white major leagues have begun to take black players, possibly spelling the end of the Negro Leagues.

Biddy's journal of his year with the Birmingham Black Barons affords a unique perspective on a segregated America.

Standards:
