Homer and his daddy are baseball crazy. Ever since last year, 1947, when Larry Doby followed Jackie Robinson across baseball's color line and signed on with the Cleveland Indians, it's been like a dream come true. And today Larry Doby and the Indians are playing Game Four of the World Series against the Boston Braves! This book illuminates the effect Larry Doby had on his fans as both a baseball hero and a champion for civil rights.
