Meet John Jordan ‘Buck’ O’Neil Jr., baseball player extraordinaire and eternal optimist. Follow him on his journey from childhood dreams, to playing baseball with the Kansas City Monarch, to becoming the first African American coach in the major leagues. He is a baseball legend who showed the world how to live, love, and play ball.

This picture book biography dovetails with the 100th anniversary of the Negro National Leagues and is the debut in a series of children’s sports biographies. MLB approved.

A portion of all sales will be given to Buck’s nonprofit charity, First Base Enterprises and to the NLBM to continue his generous gifts for children.
