"Asian and Asian Pacific-American baseball pioneers and heroes have their stories told."
By: Elevation Book Publishing
ATLANTA - Sept. 18, 2017 - PRLog -- Baseball helped change the racial landscape because it not only reached across continents, it opened doors for adversity. The day Jackie Robinson entered the league, scouts set forth to recruit the best players, regardless of ethnic origin. And the recruiting success is reflected in multiple players reflecting the ethnic makeup of America.

"…the heroic story of baseball legend Jackie Robinson breaking the 'color barrier' of baseball in 1947 is well-known… the story of the struggle for inclusion by Asian and Asian Pacific-American baseball players is… with its own pioneers and heroes…"  says Dr. Billy W. Simpson.  Inclusion in history matters to all on America's summer past time.  This unique story shares thrills and insight on the struggle to equality and reveals the avenues baseball moguls used to recruit Asians and Asian Pacific Islanders for the game.
