Summary
Baseball has been as much of a national pastime to Cuba as it has to the U.S., due in no small part to Fidel Castro's love of the game. This book chronicles the central role Castro played in transforming the sport from professional to amateur status in the small island country, which has produced dozens, if not hundreds, of baseball stars
