¡Pleibol! In the Barrios and the Big Leagues

Baseball has been a social and cultural force within Latino and Latin American communities across the United States for over a century. It is more than simply a game; Latinas/os have celebrated their communities, made a living, and challenged prejudice through baseball. Those who seized the opportunities afforded by this global game have changed American baseball and culture more broadly. ¡Pleibol! In the Barrios and the Big Leagues takes audiences on a journey into the heart of American baseball to understand how generations of Latinas/os have helped make the game what it is today. Their inspirational stories gesture to larger themes in American history that connect us all, on and off the diamond.
