Speaker Series: Mark Ocegueda on Mexican-American Baseball in Sacramento

Join the Center for Sacramento History at 7 pm on Thursday, May 30, for our latest Speaker Series event, featuring Dr. Mark Ocegueda, assistant professor of U.S. and Mexican-American history at Sacramento State, who will present on his recently released photo-documentary book Mexican-American Baseball in Sacramento. The book connects stories of athletes, teams, and their community to a broader Mexican-American history, with a focus on the celebration of ethnic identity and community solidarity that baseball provided to Sacramento’s Mexican-American community. Dr. Ocegueda, will also discuss the exhibit he curated with the Center for Sacramento History, Campo de Sueños: Mexican American Baseball History in Sacramento, and how this project fits into a larger special collections initiative to document the history of Mexican-American communities through the Latino Baseball History Project. He will also sign books.
