Previous entries to the Bookshelf on Dr. King include this piece on his baseball connections. And another here. And this one, titled “Baseball and Dr. King.”

Two books published in 2017  — The Year of the Pitcher: Bob Gibson, Denny McLain, and the End of Baseball’s Golden Age and One Nation Under Baseball: How the 1960s Collided with the National Pastime — devote significant narrative regarding King’s assassination and how baseball as players and owners battled back and forth over the proper way to pay respect to the slain civil rights leader.
