Larry Doby

America’s best sportswriter Terry Pluto was on with me today, and among the many things we discussed was Larry Doby, the first black player in the American League.  It is great that Jackie Robinson is getting the prasie due him as “42″ rolls up big box office, but for the story of the first black American League ballplayer, Larry Doby, who may have had an even tougher road to walk, read Terry’s book Our Tribe:

All of Terry’s books, including his books on faith, are available here.  All of his columns are at his Facebook page www.facebook.com/terrypluto.  Follow him on Twitter @TerryPluto.
