Summary
"Roy Campanella loved baseball. A professional player since the age of fifteen, he later became the first African American catcher to integrate Major League Baseball. Fans and players adored Campy for his good nature and cheered his multiple MVP awards as a Brooklyn Dodger. But in 1958, his career ended when a car accident left him a quadriplegic. Refusing to give in to self-pity, Campy became a Dodgers coach, held baseball clinics for teenagers, and bravely advocated for the disabled."--Cover
