"Jackie Robinson was much more than a splendid athlete who made history by his glittering skills on the baseball field and his courage in breaking racial barriers there. A highly intelligent, sensitive, searching human being, he was also a man of many ideas and opinions that challenged the status quo in America at every turn. Michael Long’s Beyond Home Plate richly documents this larger vision of one of our most revered national icons."—Arnold Rampersad, author of Jackie Robinson: A Biography

"Beyond baseball, beyond race, beyond politics, Jackie Robinson stands as one of the most important figures in American history, and Beyond Home Plate shows us why. Michael Long’s terrific book is an indispensable addition to the story of Robinson’s incredible journey."—Jonathan Eig, author of Opening Day: The Story of Jackie Robinson’s First Season
