Synopsis: His dream was to play professional baseball. Instead, Sam Lacy became an outspoken advocate for equal opportunity, using words to pry open doors so athletes at all levels could realize their dreams. Lacy became a sportswriter during a time when blacks and whites did not mix in many aspects of American life. His efforts helped to bring dramatic change, starting with Jackie Robinson's breaking the racial barrier in major league baseball. Lacy's columns are filled with on-the-scene accounts and insider stories; he not only interviewed players, he traveled with them and lived with them as he fought with and for them. Lacy covers all sports. He has written about six Olympics and countless other games, matches, tournaments, and meets. His perspective is neither one-sided nor predictable; he's as likely to chastise a player as a team owner if the situation warrants it. He has pushed for the rights of women athletes, too; even Little League was not immune.

About the Author: Newson was a reporter/editor for the Afro-American Newspapers of Baltimore from 1957-78. He served four terms as a Pulitzer Prize panel juror.

Book Description Cornell Maritime Press Inc.,U.S., United States, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. His dream was to play professional baseball. Instead, Sam Lacy became an outspoken advocate for equal opportunity, using words to pry open doors so athletes at all levels could realize their dreams. Fighting for Fairness is the account of sportswriter Sam Lacys career-long battle to lower racial barriers in sports. Lacy spearheaded integration in major league baseball, and recognition of this achievement led to his induction into the writers wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame on July 26, 1998. Sam Lacys on-the-scene accounts of sports events and insider stories about legendary sports figures are unmatched. Lacy lived with sports heroes like Jackie Robinson and Larry Doby in the segregated accommodations to which they were relegated for years, despite their outstanding performances on the playing field. This extraordinary book stands as a mirror of the progress America has made in race relations during Sam Lacys lifetime. Bookseller Inventory # AAG9780870335129
