From the late, great Roberto Clemente, to Giants legend Juan Marichal to Pedro Martinez, Manny Ramirez, Sammy Sosa, Alex Rodriguez, the Alou brothers, and many, many more, Latinos continue to make their mark on baseball. Béisbol takes an interdisciplinary look at this phenomenon, examining the impact of Latino players on the game and all that surrounds it, as well as baseball's impact on Latino players and fans.
Under the expert guidance of Ilan Stavans, the book collects essays and literary pieces that offer a wide-range of assessments, from the personal to the academic, exploring the sport from historical, sociological, athletic, religious, and gender-building perspectives. Combining scholarly and literary views, Béisbol promotes a comprehensive understanding of the game as both an athletic activity and an entertainment form among Latinos in the Spanish-speaking world and the United States.
