Only the Ball Was White documents racism in the early 1920s, when a New York Giants scout was sent to watch a young Cuban play for Foster’s American Giants, a baseball club in the Negro Leagues. The scout liked what he saw, but was disappointed in the player’s light brown appearance. Such was life behind the color line, the unofficial boundary that prevented hundreds of star-quality athletes from playing big-league baseball.
