About the Author

Bob Motley is the only living umpire from the Negro Baseball Leagues. While a combat Marine in World War II, Motley found his life's passion, umpiring. In addition to his time in the Negro Leagues, he umpired in the Pacific Coast League and the College World Series, and also officiated semi-pro and college basketball and football games. Motley currently serves on the board of directors for the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and is a Royal Lancer with the Kansas City Royals. He lives in Kansas City, MO. Larry Lester is a Negro League baseball historian and researcher. A founding member of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, MO, Lester has spent his career bringing to light some of the most important, poignant, and largely forgotten moments in American baseball history. He currently serves as co-chairman of the Negro Leagues Committee for the prestigious Society for American Baseball Research (SABR). He lives in Raytown, MO. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
