    • Synopsis
    • Narrated by Andy Garcia, Beisbol is a definitive look at Latin baseball — its origins, its history, and its impact upon the game today. Culled from over 100 hours of interviews done with stars past and present, plus scouts, historians, broadcasters, and executives, “Beisbol” deals with race, politics, economics, and culture in ways that are funny, poignant, and illuminating, while never overlooking the joy and beauty of the game.
      With footage officially sanctioned by Major League Baseball, and appearances by Sparky Anderson, Garret Morris, Esai Morales, and a host of past and present MLB stars… this film is rightly is due to be in the pantheon right alongside Ken Burns’s Baseball, and among the best sports documentaries of all time!
