This illustration is for chapter 2 of the Notable Missourian book on Buck O'Neil by Truman State University Press. Many early Negro League teams would "barnstorm" small towns to play baseball against local company teams or other Negro League teams. The towns loved this because they weren't often able to watch high caliber major league players, and in every sense the negro league players were exactly that. It is still commonly believed that some of the best players to ever play baseball were likely in the negro leagues.
Anywho I'm on a tangent! I've been on a Ken Burns kick and am smack in the middle of the Baseball series which dovetails nicely with this book about Buck O'Neil. This illustration shows Buck and a bunch of his teammates driving to the next small Florida town where they have a game scheduled. If one of the cars would break down, the guys would have to all cram into a single car to make it to their destination. Some of the guys would even stand on the running boards and ride on the outside of the car! Now that's dedication.
