Baseball Historian Adrian Burgos to speak at Illini Union Bookstore

Playing America's Game

I’d like to encourage any baseball fan in the C-U area to attend this event.  University of Illinois professor and baseball historian Adrian Burgos will be speaking at the Illini Union Bookstore on Wednesday at 4:30.  He’ll be plugging his latest book, Playing America’s Game:  Baseball, Latinos and the Color Line

We interviewed Dr Burgos on Baseball Zealot Radio a few shows back.  He’s a font of baseball historical knowledge (especially regarding the Negro Leagues and the role of Latinos in baseball). 

If you can’t make it to the event, you can order his book from the University of California Press. 

Hope to see you there!
