Ruling over Monarchs, Giants & Stars : umpiring in the Negro leagues & beyond by Bob Motley( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Motley's account of the Negro Leagues is not a sad one; rather, it celebrates a league long lost and salutes a remarkable group of baseball players that captivated audiences with its flashy play. That much was true of Negro League players, but it was also true of the umps. The men in black--not blue--took to diamonds across the country sporting fetching attire, black ties, and shiny dress shoes. Motley took things a step further, entertaining audiences by exaggerating his calls--doing the splits or leaping high in the air while roaring, "YOU'RE O-O-O-U-U-T-T-T!"
