Baseball Zealot Radio interviews Dr Adrian Burgos, author of Playing America’s Game: Baseball, Latinos and the Color Line

Show Notes for Episode 27:

Hosts: Tom

Summary: University of Illinois Professor of History Adrian Burgos has just come out with his book, Playing America’s Game: Baseball, Latinos and the Color Line, and I thought I’d have him come on and talk about it.  Dr Burgos has done extensive research on Latinos in baseball especially in relation to the Negro Leagues.  More info from the University of Illinois website…

Also, Dr Burgos played an instrumental part in the induction of the class of 2006 Negro League ballplayers.  Again more info…

For those in the Champaign-Urbana area, he will be doing a book signing at the Illini Union Bookstore on September 19 at 4:30pm (note the corrected time).
