S. L. Price, a senior writer at Sports Illustrated since 1994, has been called a “Master of the New Journalism” by the New York Times. We’re pleased to announce that his acclaimed book Pitching Around Fidel is available again in a new edition. This book tells the story of one journalist’s quest to discover the secret to the unbridled passion Cuban players show for their sports. As you travel through the island with Price, you’ll meet some of Cuba’s greatest athletic heroes and discover the truth behind its unparalleled sports culture.
