This Week On “Being Latino”: MLB’s Latin American Problem

Being Latino, the largest Latino community on Facebook, is a communication platform designed to educate and connect all peoples across the global Latino spectrum. They also have a fascinating online magazine. Every week, we’ll be featuring a story we feel you should read.

Today’s selection from our friends over at Being Latino comes to us from Ryan Almodovar, who shines a light at the often ignored subject of Latino (particularly Dominican) beisboleros using fraudulent identities while playing in the States. The reasoning behind taking someone else’s name and age makes perfect sense given how Major League Baseball and its teams exploit Latino players. Along with this read we also suggest you check out Sugar, one of the greatest films we’ve seen concerning the tough and nearly-impossible challenges Latin American players face to make it to the Majors.
