Activity Overview


In this activity, students will examine the narrator’s point of view. The point of view is from an African American baseball player playing between the 1920s and 1947. Knowing the narrator's point of view helps us understand the knowledge, background, and any biases that the narrator might have. This narrator experienced the events first-hand, and he shares his experience with the reader.


Examples:

"Those major leagues learned a lot by playing us, and we learned a lot by playing them. They learned we were men just as they were, and would shake our hands and look us in the eye after we beat them, as did we."


"We played on some of the worst fields you could imagine...Some ol' pasture. You had to pray the ball wouldn't land in some cow stuff."


“In Latin America, if you were a good ballplayer, they treated you like a king. Kids followed us in the streets asking for autographs.”
