Description: In an artful pastiche observation, personal narrative, interviews, and investigative reporting, S. L. Price examines sports and athletes in today's Cuba. On his journeys to the island, he finds Olympic and world champion boxers, track stars, and volleyband and baseball players. But what he also finds in that with Fidel Castro's revolution staggering beneath the weight of a great depression, Cuba's famed sports machine is imploding. Athletes such as New York Yankees pitcher Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez and New York Mets star Rey Ordonez are detecting by plane and raft. Superstars bike to then games. And Cuban sports legends like boxer Teofilo Stevenson are losing themselves in a bottle of rum. More than just an examination of sports in the hothouse of a revolution, Pitching Around Fidel presents a vibrant and realistic portrait of Cuba today, complete with sex-happy tourists, blackouts, Castro's famous former lover, and Charles Hill, a Black Power fugitive wanted for more than 30 years in the United States for murder and hijacking. At once a biting travelogue and a meditation on sports in both America and Cuba, Prince's insightful portrait is a valuable document about a time and place that is close to fading away.
