About the Author:

John Virtue is director of the International Media Center at Florida International University in Miami, Florida. He lives in Miami Beach.

Review:

"John Virtue has more in mind than baseball. He sets the story of [Jorge] Pasquel's work as a promoter, businessman, hustler, and champion of equal rights against the background of the historical relationship between Pasquel's native land and the colossus to the north, a relationship that Porfirio Diaz, for 35 years the president of Mexico, once summarized by opining 'Poor Mexico. We are so far away from God and so close to the United States.'"--Boston Sunday Globe; "engaging and inspiring story"--La Prensa del Beisbol Latino.
