Campy

(2007)
The Story of Roy Campanella
A non fiction book by

 
Roy Campanella loved baseball. A professional player from 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. With honesty and affection, award-winning author David A. Adler tells the story - complemented by stunning oil paintings by Gordon C. James - of a man who was so much more than a sports hero.
