The Page Fence Giants were an all-star black baseball team based in Adrian, Michigan.  From 1895-98, they played teams from local communities, along with games against minor and major league squads and other black baseball nines.  In 1896 the Giants won the Black Baseball Championship series.  Despite their winning ways, a championship, and a roster with includes one member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, this is the first book written about this all-star team.
