I Was Right on Time: My Journey from Negro Leagues to the Majors
Buck O'Neil's autobiography, entitled I Was Right on Time: My Journey from Negro Leagues to the Majors was published by Simon & Schuster in 1996. Amazon.com describes the book's tone as follows: "The beauty of former Negro League star Buck O'Neil's autobiography is its tone: it's filled with thankfulness for the life he's had. Born into an era of racial segregation, O'Neil - truly an inspirational presence in the Ken Burns documentary Baseball - has a right to be bitter for the opportunities denied him; instead, he is at peace with the opportunities he took." 
Publisher's Weekly in 1996 described the volume as one that no fan of the sport should miss.
