A book review:

I’ve read The Duke of 18th & Vine: Bob Kendrick Pitches Negro Leagues Baseball, (Cascade Publishing House, Atlanta, 2020). I own this book and it will be forever in my baseball collection.

Again in 2018, Norwood nearly wrestled the mayor’s office away from the Black power structure in another close race against Keshia Lance Bottoms, Reed’s hand-picked successor. read more
