Summary
  • "From 1900 through the 1940s Latino baseball players suffered discrimination, poor accommodations, low pay and homesickness to play a game they loved. Those who were both talented and light-skinned enough to make it to the majors were mocked for being foreign. Those in the Negro Leagues were, like African American ballplayers, segregated and largely ignored by the public and major league scouts."
  • "Building on the work of researchers who focussed on the seasons and careers of these pioneer athletes, Nick Wilson draws on primary documents and interviews to round out our knowledge of the players as people. Jose Mendez, Miguel Gonzalez, Luis Tiant, Sr., Martin Dihigo, Rodolfo Fernandez, Roberto Ortiz, Cristobal Torriente, Hiram Bithorn and Pedro "Preston" Gomez are only a few examples of the players included here. Appendices on "Americans Who Positively Influenced Latin Migration" and "Latinos and the Washington Senators Spring Training Camps, 1939-1942" are also included."--Jacket
