Pride of Havana: A History of Cuban Baseball
Robert Gonzalez Echevarria (au). From the first amateur leagues of the 1860s to the exploits of Livan & Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez, this book traces the arc of Cuban baseball, intertwining its heroes & their stories with the politics, music, dance, & lit. of the Cuban people. Cuba rejected Spanish hegemony & cast off many of her mother country’s traditions. In sport, baseball displaced bullfighting as the pastime of choice. By the early 1940s Cuba had become a major conduit in spreading the game throughout Latin America, & a proving ground for great baseball talent, with white major leaguers & Negro League players from the U.S. competing with the cream of Latin talent. The colorful anecdotes & stories in this book are based on extensive research & many interviews. B&W photos.
