Library Staff

The Dominican Republic has churned out some of baseball's most historic players and this book relates how most of them came from poverty but with one ultimate goal: get to the Show in MLB. A finely written account of the Hispanic influence on U.S. baseball.

Mark Kurlansky attempts to determine why the Dominican Republic produces such prodigious baseball talent.
