Baseball's biggest page-one story of the past half century arguably has been the Latino invasion of America's greatest national pastime. Major league baseball has exploded into a truly international sport, and at the vanguard stand legions of ballplayers native to Spanish-speaking Latin American nations. This book features over 500 profiles of the most influential Latino figures in baseball, including ball players, team and league officials, managers, and sportswriters whose contributions to the diamond sport came either in the major leagues or in their own native countries. Detailed narrative chapters in this indispensable resource highlight the history of baseball in Latin American and Caribbean countries and reveal little-known facts about the origins of baseball, the earliest teams and leagues, and the impact of Latino ballplayers on both U.S. professional leagues and world amateur baseball tournaments.
