For the first time, witness and read about New York's most prominent black teams, from post Civil War days through the late 1950s. Discover the greatness of teams like the Cuban Giants, Lincoln Stars/Giants, and Brooklyn's original Bums, the Royal Giants, the Brown Dodgers and the Eagles; and Manhattan's Black Yankees, the Cubans and the early integration days of Major League teams like the Dodgers, Yankees and Giants.

Packed in 75 years of history are images of well known New York legends, such as Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Willie Mays, Don Newcombe, Joe Black, Monte Irvin and Elston Howard, et al. Also, once masked in anonymity and now exposed in this illustrated narration are rare, vintage images of legendary stars like Minnie Minoso, Ray Dandridge, Martin Dihigo, Satchel Paige, Willie Wells, Smokey Joe Williams, John Henry "Pop" Lloyd, Pete Hill, Spots Poles, Cannonball "Dick" Redding, Rap Dixon, George "Mule" Suttles, John Beckwith, and Jose Mendez, et al. There is no comparative work on New York's Sugar Hill teams and its socio-economic impact on the National Pastime. Become an eye-witness to roughly 300 images of sporting life in the Naked City.
