The San Diego Union-Tribune — If you spend enough time getting to know a city, you’ll notice official and unofficial monuments of its history. On rare occasions, you might catch sight of grown men in crisp white and sky-blue uniforms kicking up clouds of dust at the diamond on 4th Street and Evergreen Avenue. This is part of the lesser known piece of Los Angeles history captured in “Mexican American Baseball in East Los Angeles.”
The book’s photos and stories are drawn from the Latino Baseball History Project archive, permanently housed in the Cal State San Bernardino John M. Pfau Library. This book is part of a series by Arcadia Publishing that enables authors to turn personal snapshots, historical photos and archive materials into paperback books with a regional emphasis.
