History of Latino Baseball

On the interactive ¡Viva Baseball! website, students can select various countries in Latin America and learn about the history of players from each country. The site includes an interactive timeline, as well as filmed interviews with, and biographies of, players. Especially engaging is the quiz entitled “Would You Make It to the Majors?” The site’s features are based on the inquiry model of student learning, maximizing reading, critical thinking, and comprehension skills. The site can be used to instruct students in how to analyze sources as to purpose, audience, and accuracy. Students who are bilingual can choose to read the information in English or Spanish. The website was adapted from the ¡Viva Baseball! exhibit at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York.
