Great memories and a lot of statistical facts. For many decades, the Puerto Rico winter league , was a cheap way, to watch playing almost mayor league baseball caliber. I remember the disbelief face of a tourist seen for $ 5 bucks, playing in the same team , Roberto Alomar, Carlos Baerga, Carmelo Martinez, Ruben Sierra, Edgar Martinez, Carlos Delgado,Rey Sanchez,Juan Gonzalez, Ricky Bones,, etc, vs Bernie Williams etc. These days, after 20 years of been in the same draft as all the mainland players,few puertorican players are shinning in MLB. Also a new vision in the general managers that prohibits the few stars to play winter ball ,has diminish the quality of players. But a new crop of stars are brewing . Players like Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor, Jose Baez are near stardom in MLB in one or two seasons. In those days, players that play year around baseball, didn't suffer lesion as often that these generation. Hopefully a new commitment will rise by MLB , an allow the best new stars refine the skills in Puerto Rico Winter Baseball. All general managers should read these books, and learn the secret of their predecessors .

An excellent and well-written book. Van Hyning does a great service to the only baseball dynasty the Caribbean has ever known. The book, not only brings to light obscure anecdotes, but it also provides the reader with a wealth of baseball stats on the team througout its history. Few folks know that many of major league's most famous players got their start with the Santurce Crabbers. I've been fortunate to have grown up with the Crabbers and seen some of the history relived in the book. This book is especially important in 2004, the year the Santurce franchise was sold to another city in Puerto Rico.
