Cuban Star: - How One Negro-League Owner Changed the Face of Baseball
In this raucous biography Adrian Burgos, Jr. brings to life Alejandro “Alex” Pompei. A proud and boisterous Negro League team owner, Alex Pompez
rose to prominence during Latino baseball’s earliest glory days. Pompez presided over
the twilight of the Negro League, holding it together as long as possible in the face of integration
even as he helped his players make the transition to the majors. He became one of Latin America’s most
vocal advocates for the game.
