"Chief": The American Indian Integration of Baseball, 1897-1945.
Powers-Beck, Jeffrey
American Indian Quarterly, v25 n4 p508-38 Fall 2001
Beginning in 1897, American Indians endured their own integration experience in professional baseball. The experience was propelled by government boarding schools, which used baseball as a tool for assimilation and for prestige and profit. But the players on boarding-school teams often found in the sport their own means of cultural resistance and source of pride. Contains many references and lists of Native professional baseball players. (SV)
