How much do you know
about Louis Sockalexis?
Perhaps, that he was a legendary
Penobscot Indian athlete from Maine?
Maybe, that he was one of the
greatest college baseball players of all-time,
while playing at Holy Cross College, where myths
abound about his power hitting, his blazing speed
and his extraordinary throwing arm?
Now, there's a book available where you'll find
more information about all of this, and far more, in
the most accurate and comprehensive study
ever made on the life of Louis Sockalexis.
It features a game-by-game analysis
of the man who fought a Jackie Robinson-like battle
for acceptance in baseball..and
the true story of how Louis Sockalexis
inspired a change of nickname
for a major league team.
And this same book also makes its case and dares to
reclaim the title for the man who rightfully
should be remembered as
"the first Native American to play
major league baseball."
All this and more in....
