This compelling book examines mortality risk among former Hispanic and African-American players in Major League Baseball (MLB) during the 40-year period following desegregation in the League. Analyzing a variety of biological, cultural, social, and environmental factors, the author illustrates the potential health effects of racial disparities on these elite athletes and fills a significant gap in the mortality literature.

Included in the coverage:

  • The history and evolution of professional baseball in both the United States and Latin America
  • Literature and statistical reviews of racial and ethnic inequalities in mortality in the US general population
  • Overview and evaluation of methodologies used to statistically analyze mortality risk in this professional-athlete population
  • Implications and applications of research findings related to Hispanic and African-American MLB-player mortality

A unique perspective on a pressing public health issue, Mortality Among Hispanic and African-American Players After Desegregation in Major League Baseball is a salient read for public health professionals including epidemiologists, medical professionals, and social scientists, as well as athletes, historians, and those with broad interest in African American and Latino health.
