a book about baseball and civil rights in Farmville, Virginia.

Richard Aubry, Ed.D., played for the Farmville All Stars for three years in the 1970s. During that time, Richard celebrated a twenty-two-game winning streak, and was named pitcher of the year in 1976. He remains close friends with the other players.

Richard has multiple degrees from the University of Virginia. In addition to being a college professor, he has also worked as a school teacher, principal, director of instruction, and assistant superintendent. He now lives in Florida with his wife.

Coauthor Warren (Ricky) Brown was co-captain of the Farmville All Stars when Richard joined. A native of Farmville, he was the first African American to work for the Farmville Police Department who had been trained at the Police Training Center. His biggest accomplishment is persevering when the public schools closed in his community. He became a success without his father living at home.
