By The Author

In Depression-era Bismarck, North Dakota, one of baseball's most unlikely champions assembled one of the most improbable teams in the sport's history. A decade before Jackie Robinson broke into the Major Leagues, car dealer Neil Churchill signed the best players he could find to his semipro baseball team, regardless of race, and fielded an integrated squad that took on all comers in spectacular fashion. Color Blind returns Churchill's team to its rightful place in baseball history.
