About the Book

The Caribbean Series is a unique regional baseball event, the oldest of its kind. After starting in 1949 and enduring a decade-long sabbatical for political reasons in the 1960s, it was resurrected in 1970 and continues to this day. With seven countries competing, the Caribbean Series represents a source of pride for team owners, general managers, players, and fans alike. This book presents first-hand accounts from over 200 past players and managers, including details on 66 CS tournaments. With many details presented for the first time in English, this history presents the exciting Latin American baseball event in rich historical and personal context.
