What makes a baseball player a hero? As Hank Aaron said of Jackie Robinson, the player who broke baseball's color barrier: "He gave us our dreams." An award-winning sportswriter looks at players from every generation who transcended baseball and helped define the times they lived in. Players such as Robinson, Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and Roberto Clemente "represent to us the best that people can aspire to be. In that sense, all of baseball's heroes gave us our dreams." Photographs. Glossary. Index. Suggestions for further reading.
