This book takes a close look at the international ballplayers, managers, and officials in Major League Baseball from 1876 to 2012. It is not only a comprehensive history of foreigners in baseball, but also an examination of the impact and significance of these individuals on the sport, including their influence on the minor leagues and on the expansion, development, and popularity of baseball in the U.S. and elsewhere.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is. . . an encyclopedia/reference work. . . . Jozsa includes charts, lists of names, countries, major- and minor-league players, executives, managers, the names of those who failed drug tests, and all sorts of disparate information about baseball players whom the author describes as 'foreign-born and Puerto Rican.' There is a chapter about players in the American League, another about the National League, then the minor leagues before he moves to management and baseball operations. . . . There is a bibliography that is comprehensive, with lists of books, articles, and Internet sources, all in English and very useful. Summing Up: Recommended. . . All collections. * CHOICE *
Baseball beyond Borders provides a significant contribution to the research on the international baseball community. . . .This is a valuable book that will encourage readers to explore other books on this topic. * NINE: A Journal of Baseball History & Culture *
