“After Jackie”, by Carl Fussman is subtitled “Pride, Prejudice, and Baseball’s Forgotten Heroes: An Oral History”. It is hard to write a book review about “After Jackie” because “No part of this book may be used or reproduced in any manner whatsoever…” followed by the usual permission instructions. “Like a good meal, praise should be served,” I read “when it is still bubbling.” I have been waiting for two years for a reply to a permission request and it is hard to keep praise bubbling for such long periods of time.

For if not, they would not have been passed on from generation to generation. So take these tidbits of wisdom from our forefathers and go for that holiday.
