Cuba's Baseball Defectors: The Inside Story by Peter C. Bjarkman

Peter C. Bjarkman has traveled to all corners of Cuba covering baseball, from their early Olympic baseball triumphs to the recent domestic economic crises that have spurred an increasing number of Cuban stars to abandon their homeland. Having enjoyed rare access and personally knowing most of the top Cuban stars, Bjarkman reveals the complete story behind the Cuban big league phenomenon, and answers numerous questions lurking behind one of the biggest sports stories of the past decades. He explains precisely how Cuba has managed to generate such remarkable baseball talent, how until recently they have kept most of their talent at home, and why Cuban government and sports officials are so adamant about rejecting open transfers with major league ball clubs. He reveals the personal histories of some of the highest-profile stars among recent Cuban imports and explains unfolding events that have led them to eventually choose “defection” from their homeland. In the process, Bjarkman explores the personal risks that many have taken to achieve their North American baseball dreams.
