From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up--Cockcroft points out that baseball had roots in Latin America long before Abner Doubleday was given erroneous credit for inventing the game and that the passion for baseball in many countries south of the U.S. border remains fervent. While Latinos who "weren't too black" could be found in limited numbers on major league rosters throughout the early part of the 20th century, they were routinely discriminated against and faced much of the same prejudice that African-American players experienced once baseball's color-line was finally broken. While today, star Hispanic players are found on almost every team, Latinos are still vastly underrepresented in managerial, coaching, front office, and ownership positions. The author documents his writing with nearly 200 endnotes and provides a fairly extensive bibliography. A number of black-and-white photographs are also included. Readers will find some interesting accounts of outstanding baseball players while being served a slice of social history as well.
