Resumen:

The Eastern Stars: How Baseball Changed the Dominican Town of San Pedro de Macoris : In the Dominican Republic town of San Pedro de Macoris, baseball is often seen as the only way to a better life. For those who make it, the million-dollar paychecks from Major League Baseball mean that not only they, but their entire families as well, have been saved from grinding poverty. The successful few set an example that dazzles the neighbors they left behind. But for the majority, this dream is illusory. In The Eastern Stars, New York Times bestselling author Mark Kurlansky reveals the connection between two countries' love affair with a sport, and the remarkable journey of impoverished San Pedro and its baseball players - including Rico Carty, Albert Pujols, Robinson Canó, Sammy Sosa, and Alfonso Soriano - who have sought freedom from poverty through playing ball.
