Editorial Reviews

The Story Of The Latin Americans Who Revolutionized America’s Pastime Narrated By Marc Anthony In this award-winning documentary, filmmaker Dan Klores (director of THE BOYS OF 2ND STREET PARK and RING OF FIRE: THE EMILE GRIFFITH STORY) explores the fierce struggles and rich history of Latino players in Major League Baseball. It is a remarkable story of racism, culture clash and personal triumphs, told through rare archival footage and more than 100 hours of provocative interviews with such legends as Luis Tiant, Orestes ‘Minnie’ Minoso, Orlando Cepeda, Vic Power, Tony Perez, Felipe Alou, Juan Marichal, Rod Carew, Fernando Valenzuela, Cookie Rojas, Keith Hernandez and more, plus current-day superstars like David Ortiz, Alex Rodriquez, Pedro Martinez, Carlos Beltran and Miquel Tejada. From its roots in Cuba and the Caribbean, through integration, shocking controversies and the extraordinary legacy of Roberto Clemente, experience the lives of men who battled to play the sport they loved, only to discover the courage to change the game forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie!!! June 4, 2007
Format:DVD
The movie is an excellent view of how Major League Baseball grew and evolved due to the Latin Americans in the game. It presents rare footage of the Hispanic Legends of Baseball and would be a thrill to any true fan of the game.

I teach a sport and culture class and this book is a wonderful tool that gives the Latin American and Caribbean baseball players experiences as they tried to break into the major leagues of baseball. Their experiences were mirrored the black baseball experience in many ways.
