Title: Raceball: How the Major Leagues Colonized the Black and Latin Game

Author: Rob Ruck

Publisher: Beacon Press

Type: Non Fiction

Released: March 1, 2011

Length: 273 pages

The colliding histories of black and Latin ballplayers in the major leagues have traditionally been told as a story of their shameful segregation and redemptive integration. After peaking at 27 percent of all major leaguers in 1975, African Americans now make up less than one-tenth of the sport. The number of Latin American players has exploded to more than a quarter of all players and more than half of all players in the minor leagues. Historian Rob Ruck explains the demographics of today’s Major League Baseball and breaks down how race, economics and imperialism made it what it is today.
