Mexican American Baseball in the Inland Empire celebrates the Mexican American barrio baseball clubs of the Inland Empire in evocative, historic photographs. From the early 20th century through the 1950s, baseball diamonds in the Inland Empire provided unique opportunities for nurturing athletic and educational skills, ethnic identity, and political self-determination for Mexican Americans during an era of segregation.
