Saw a show on my local PBS last night called "Voces". this episode was about the early players who came from the Dominican Republic. The main subjects were Felipe Alou and Juan Marichal. Other players mentioned were: Mateo y Jesus Alou, Ozzi Virgil and Manny Mota. though he's a P.R., Orlando Cepeda was also interviewed.
The show mentioned a game between the D.R. and Cuba that the commissioner did not want major leaguers to play. Some played anyway and
Felipe was fined for writing an article for Sport Magazine.
