About the Book

This combination reference book and history covers the inroads and achievements made on professional ball fields by Latin American athletes, the Major Leagues’ greatest international majority.
Following an “on this date in Hispanic baseball history” format, the author takes a commemorative look at generations of players from Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America, from the earliest pioneers through the well-known stars of today.
There are two appendices: first Latinos by franchise; and an extensive chronological listing of Latino milestones by country. The book is fully indexed by players, teams, ballparks, and other contributors to Latino baseball history.
