Our Stories: Baseball in the Barrio
Baseball and softball in Chandler have been a social and cultural force for the Hispanic/Latino community. The baseball diamond provided a space for conversations that tackled the historical attitudes and prejudices against Mexican descendants. Speaker, Alex Nuñez, will discuss the role of baseball as a community engager at both the local and national levels.
Registration encouraged; walk-ins are also welcome.
