1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

David Culhane reports on the history of diversity in baseball management, with a large majority of front office management still being White despite a diverse set of players and fans. Former players Hank Aaron and Frank Robinson insist that baseball management is unfair against Blacks both in the past toward players and currently toward on field and front office management. Tracy Lewis, the president of the minor league Savannah Cardinals and the first Black general manager as well as the first Black woman executive in baseball, explains she felt out of place initially in meetings with all White baseball executives. Includes civil rights leader Jesse Jackson urging the hiring of more Black management following remarks by Los Angeles Dodgers Manager Al Campanis suggesting that Black people do not have the "necessities" to become upper management
