Latino Players and Major League Baseball

Today, 60 years after Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s color barrier, 25 percent of the players in the majors are Latino. Jorge Arangure Jr., senior baseball writer for ESPN The Magazine, will lead a discussion on the changing face of the sport and what the future holds for Latino players. He will be joined by Roberto González Echevarría, author of The Pride of Havana: A History of Cuban Baseball (Oxford University Press, 1999); Bruce Markusen, author of Roberto Clemente: The Great One (Sagamore Publishing, 1998); and Rusty Torres, outfielder for the Yankees (1971-1972) and other teams (1972- 1981). Presented in conjunction with The Glory Days: New York Baseball 1947-1957.
