The Players Union, 1960-81

About the Author:
Charles Korr is a professor of history at the University of Missouri St.Louis. In addition to his work on baseball, he has published books and articles on subjects including English foreign policy in the seventeenth century, the social history of a London soccer club (West Ham United: The Making of a Football Club), and the politics of political protest in the Olympics. At his first baseball game, he saw Joe DiMaggio at Shibe Park. His current work deals with how South African political prisoners on Robben Island used sports in prison as a way to continue their struggle against apartheid. He and his wife, Anne, live in St. Louis and hope to spend part of each year in South Africa and Britain.
