PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“Like my father and I, many of us of Mexican descent lived vicariously through Fernando's success. When he won, we won. He was our Sandy Koufax, our Joe DiMaggio and in a way our Jackie Robinson because he gave us a sense of belonging and permission to participate as fans in the most American of pastimes -- baseball.” Director Cruz Angeles.

From the critically acclaimed series ESPN’s 30 for 30, a pudgy 19-year-old Mexican left-handed pitcher from a remote village in the Sonoran desert, unable to speak a word of English, sells out stadiums across America and becomes a sensation.
The narrative of Fernando Valenzuela’s success is set in a Los Angeles where immigrants and the government clash in the LA of the 1980s. The short documentary recounts the little known story of the eviction of Mexican Americans from Chavez Ravine, where Dodger Stadium is to be built. This film shows the complexities of sports, politics and culture.

The viewing guide contains 40 questions that closely follows the film text with a complete answer key, and links to relevant reading sources.
