The Kansas City Monarchs, the Chicago American Giants, the St. Louis Stars, the Birmingham Black Barons, the Homestead Grays and the Indianapolis Clowns; for over fifty years, they were the Yankees, Cardinals, and Red Sox of black baseball in America. And for over a decade beginning in the late 1940s, umpire Bob Motley called balls and strikes for many of their games, working alongside such legends as Satchel Paige, Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, and Willie Mays. Today, Motley is the only living arbiter from the Negro Leagues. "Ruling Over Monarchs, Giants & Stars" is the revealing, humorous, and unforgettable memoir celebrating a long lost league and a remarkable group of baseball players. Motley recounts the characters, adventure and challenges faced by these amazing men as they embraced America's pastime. This is a must-read for any baseball fan.
