Award-winning author Patricia C. McKissack?s next story about one black family?s history?perfect for Black History Month!

Brothers Tank and Jimbo Turner love sneaking into Nashville?s Sulphur Dell Ballpark to watch the superstars of Negro League baseball. When Josh Gibson, the famous home-run hitter for the Homestead Grays, bunks at their house, the boys think they?re one step away from heaven. With warmth and humor, the fourth installment of Patricia C. McKissack?s family saga brings to life an era of all-black baseball for readers who may not know that Major League teams were once restricted only to white players.
