UNDER JACKIE'S SHADOW Voices of Black Minor Leaguers Baseball Left Behind

by | Read by Bill Andrew Quinn

Biography & Memoir • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

The author has compiled oral histories of minor league ballplayers from the 1960s and '70s who didn't make the big time due, in part, to systemic racism. Bill Andrew Quinn's deep voice has a serious tone that is appropriate for these stories. Each ballplayer details specific instances of how managers and owners kept them down through unfulfilled promises. Quinn keeps his speech consistent from player to player. The author went to great lengths to keep these first-person accounts accurate. The individuals are different, but their stories all resonate with the same message.
