Overview

By all counts, Dick "Lefty" O'Neal didn't have a chance of playing professional baseball. However, today he holds the distinction of being the only white baseball player to pitch for two teams in the Negro Leagues that flourished throughout the twentieth century. Dreaming of the Majors is his account of the dream he nurtured from the age of five to play Major League baseball, the people God brought into his life who shaped the dream, and the amazing and unexpected twists and turns Dick experienced along the journey toward fulfilling the dream. "O'Neal will take you on an ironic tour of race relations on the diamond; as Lefty becomes the mirror image of Jackie Robinson, playing as the only white guy on a Negro League team." -Larry Dierker Houston Astros Hall of Famer "His writings are a pleasure and a joy to read." -Mike "The Hit Man" Easler Hitting coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers "This book is a must read for anyone who has a dream." -Merv Johnson Past assistant coach for the Arkansas Razorbacks and past assistant head coach for the Oklahoma Sooners
