The Tropic of Baseball: Baseball in the Dominican Republic based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A great read for the baseball fan as well as a light study in Caribbean/Dominican culture. Wonder why so many Dominicans excel in baseball? It's deep rooted in the culture just as soccer is in Brazil and hockey in Canada. This book covers the introduction and great growth of Dominican talent from it's early days to (almost)modern times. Needs an updated chapter to include the contributions of Sosa, Ortiz, and Pedro Martinez to the modern glory years of Dominican baseball but a great read. I found a new appreciation for Caribbean baseball history after reading this entertaining book
