Summary:
"Though they played in the years before Rube Foster formed the first Negro League, the St. Paul Gophers and the Minneapolis Keystones, had the talent, bench depth, and determination to rival many of those later teams. Focusing on these two clubs, author Peterson lays out the early history of African American baseball in the Upper Midwest"--Provided by publisher.
