PITTSBURGH, April 7, 2022 (Newswire.com)
Wayne Moody, a former professional baseball player with personal interest in Negro League Baseball, has completed his new book, “The Real Story of The Negro Leagues”: a deep look at the history of the Negro Baseball League and the brave players who helped create it.
Moody shares, “The Real Story of the Negro Leagues is an account that has needed to be told since before 1920. With the new revelation of Major League Baseball accepting Negro League statistics, it makes this book even more relevant today.
There are a multitude of players who toiled in anonymity simply because of the color of their skin. This book brings to light the people who made the Negro Leagues happen, as well as the players and executives who allowed it to flourish.
There are Negro League players who have become household names, while others, who had a major influence in its success, have gotten ignored over time. Most people believe that Jackie Robinson was the first African American to play Major League Baseball. He wasn’t. Jackie actually signaled the end of Negro League baseball. Jackie’s accomplishments were monumental, but there is a rich history that led up to that moment. That rich history is where we will begin. The struggles these great players faced and degradation they had to endure is a testament to the resolve of these individuals. Their love and desire for the great game of baseball made them tackle obstacles others would never attempt.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Wayne Moody’s new book tells of the trials faced by those who had such love and desire for the game that they took on obstacles others couldn’t even imagine.
