Baseball and The Big Red Machine

The Big Red Machine was a baseball team that operated like a machine.  This article was written by ESPN in order to tell a little bit of the history of Latino men being invited to play in American baseball.  Jackie Robinson not only opened the door for African American players, but also for Latino men to come play in the games.  To someone who does not know a lot about baseball history, it is interesting to discover how baseball was introduced to Latin American boys and how they then changed the game of baseball.
