Description
 
James D. Cockcroft (au). Latinos have been intertwined with U.S. baseball ever since the advent of the major leagues. Although a Cuban infielder played in the first U.S. professional league in its inaugural 1871 season, thereafter few Latinos were allowed to play in the U.S. major leagues because of baseballís color line. After the major leagues were reintegrated in 1947, teams slowly began to add Latino players to their rosters. This timely book examines the fascinating history of beisbol in Latin America & the tremendous impact that Latinos have had on baseball in the U.S. Today, baseball is more of a national pastime in some Latin American countries than it has ever been in the U.S., & Latinos constitute a sizable segment of U.S. major leaguers & baseball fans.
