Adrian Burgos - Part of Latino Baseball Project and Book for Smithsonian



The role of baseball in Latino life in the U.S. is the focus of "¡Pleibol!," an artifact collection project organized by the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.  Adrian Burgos, Professor of History, was recruited as the lead consultant for this project. Four years of research has culminated in his most recent book, "¡Pleibol!  In the Barrios and the Big Leagues."  Co-authored with Margaret Salazar-Porzio, a curator of Latina/o history and culture at the Smithsonian, "¡Pleibol!" is written in both English and Spanish.  The College of LAS recently interviewed Adrian Burgos about this recent publication.  Go HERE to read the full story.
