"We Are the Ship" is the story of the Negro Baseball League. Each section or "inning" tells about different aspects or groups of people that were involved in the League including the league owners, the league during wartime, and all-stars like Jackie Robinson. One of the most notable things about this book is the illustrations. They are stunning, detailed oil paintings that absolutely bring the book to life. This book is a multi-award winner including the Coretta Scott King Award and The Robert F. Sibert Award. This book is packed with information and could be shared with a wide range of students.

This book is geared towards older elementary students.

This book is about the history of African Americans and the league of baseball. The book talks about each individual player and highlights with beautiful illustration. ( )

Negro League founder, Rube Foster once said “we are the ship, all else the sea”. Kadir Nelson’s tells the story of the Negro Baseball League from it’s inception during the 1920s to the end after Jackie Robinson’s crossover to the Major Leagues in 1947. Nelson manages to narrate this story for many different sides, as players, league owners, bus drivers, and fans alike – share collectively the years these black players shared and played together. Some better than others, but all equally as important. This large hardcover book was one that includes extensive research and the footnotes to boot. The stunning images, some pages two-fold, will leave you breathless. ( )

This book tells the story of Rube Foster and his involvement in Negro League Baseball.This text pays tribute to the hardy African-American baseball players by focusing on the injustices that African American baseball players faced in the early 20's based on skin color. Specifically, from being paid close to nothing to having restaurants refuse to serve them meals before games, the Negro League players were discouraged from playing baseball. I would connect this text to history instruction by focusing on segregation and civil rights movements. Due to it's engaging and informational focus on racial prejudices, this book is likely intended for 4th to 7th graders. Personally, I enjoyed this book because it used colorful illustrations to inform it's readers about what colored athletes had to endure during that time period. ( )

This book tells the story of the African American Baseball League. Throughout this book you learn of the injustices that African American baseball players in the early 20's based on skin color. This book is great to use when teaching about segregation and discriminations and later the civil rights movement. This book is also great for students that like sports and history. I highly recommend this book. ( )

We had some white umpires from another league call our game, once. Those poor fellows didn't know what to do with themselves. They made so many mistakes, they came over and apologized after the game, said they could help it. They'd never seen our type of baseball. Said if they played like we did in the majors, they'd have to make the parks bigger to seat all the fans.
We played a different brand of baseball from the majors. Negro baseball as fast! Flashy! Daring! Sometimes it was even funny. But always every exciting to watch. People would come early to the ballpark just to see us practice. We would whip that ball around the infield with such precision, they'd applaud.
Pitchers threw anything and everything. Spitters, shine-balls, emery balls, cut balls—you name it. They cut that ball to pieces and had curveballs breaking about six-feet! Throw a new white ball to the pitcher, and it would come back brown from all the tobacco juice and what-have-you. You never knew what the ball was going to do once it left the pitcher's hand.
In some places we traveled to, we couldn't get a glass of water to drink, even if we had money to pay for it—and back then, water was free!
We played on some of the worst fields you could imagine. Once in a while, we'd play in a small town where they had just made the ballfield the same day we got there. Some ol' pasture. You had to pray the ball wouldn't land in some cow stuff. Some were so patchy—grass here, dirt there. Some didn't even have grass; and some where had as a rock, with pebbles all over the place.
