Summary
"Roy Campanella loved baseball. A professional player from the age of fifteen, he later became the first African-American catcher to integrate Major League Baseball. Fans and players adored Campy for his good nature, and cheered his multiple MVP awards as a Brooklyn Dodger. But in 1958, his career ended when a car accident left him a quadriplegic. Refusing to give in to self-pity, Campy became a Dodgers coach, held baseball clinics for teenagers, and bravely advocated for the disabled."--C.I.P
Summary
As the first African-American catcher in the Major Leagues, Roy Campanella made history in his game, but when a car accident left him a quadriplegic, he came back to the Brooklyn Dodgers as a coach and organizer of baseball clinics for teenagers
