Editorial Reviews

Nicknamed "El Toro" by his fans, Fernando Valenzuela ignited a fire that spread from LA to New York-and beyond. He vaulted himself onto the prime time stage and proved with his signature look to the heavens and killer screwball that the American dream was not reserved for those born on U.S. soil.

In this layered look at the myth and the man, Director Cruz Angeles recalls the euphoria around Fernando's arrival and probes a phenomenon that transcended baseball for many Mexican-Americans. Fernando Valenzuela himself opens up to share his perspective on this very special time. Even 20 years later, "Fernandomania" lives.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I became a baseball fan in 1979, so was able to catch the very beginning of Fernando's career at the end of 1980. And I do remember it!

I was very excited when I heard that "Fernando Nation" was going to be on ESPN and was there when it began also! I especially appreciated seeing and hearing Fernando speak. A couple of his statements showed his strength and wisdom. Regarding all the extraneous matters that can distract especially beginning players he said that he "set that aside to focus on my pitching." That sounds easy but plays hard and takes enormous discipline. Another telling comment was that he wanted to have 'un otra forma de vida." I can't remember the context exactly but the point was that he wanted to be in control of his 'form of living', what we call 'lifestyle'. Kudos to Fernando and I'm so happy knowing he's up in that sound booth at Dodger Stadium. We are fortunate to have him as part of the Dodger family!

Fernando Nation is mostly about the Mexican community in Los Angeles and the politics but very little about Fernando Valenzuela. It's pretty weak stuff and is among 30 for 30's worst programs. After the first year, they've leveled off quite a lot in looking at the rest of his career. Meanwhile, I've laughed at the notion that baseball saved Los Angeles and made race relations better. Don't be silly. All in all, never lose sight of what the title of the program is; otherwise, change the title.
