This excellent audiobook is a timely complement to baseball's celebration of the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson's major league debut. Chronicling the careers of baseball's African-American players from Robinson's time to the present, the book is a comprehensive examination not only of the players and their careers, but also of their lives and the events that transformed them and their sport. Bill Andrew Quinn's performance is ideal. His direct yet nuanced delivery brings out the players' personalities while also ensuring that listeners focus on how the players dealt with their careers and the often challenging societal issues confronting them. The result is a timely chronicle that will appeal to baseball fans, as well as anyone interested in how Jackie Robinson began a transformation that extended well beyond his own sport.
