‘Dominican Baseball’ illuminates relationship between MLB and Dominican Republic
WBUR - 04/26/2014
Mexico, Venezuela, and Japan all supply players to Major League Baseball, but no country accounts for nearly as many of them as the Dominican Republic. On Opening Day this year 83 Dominicans had jobs in the Bigs and many more appear on minor league rosters. In his new book Dominican Baseball: New Pride, Old Prejudice, Northeastern professor of Sociology-Anthropology Alan Klein examines the relationship between MLB and the game in the Dominican. He joined Bill Littlefield.
