Kill the Ámpaya!
The Best Latin American Baseball Fiction

with Dick Cluster, editor and translator
Tuesday, July 25, 6:30 p.m.

Dick Cluster will read from the stories and answer questions about Latin-American baseball history, the authors, his process, and more. This book has earned enthusiastic reviews and was chosen by Bill Littlefield as a summer must-read in sports for the Boston Globe.


A welcome reminder that inspired writing about the sport isn’t limited to the United States. Dick Cluster has done a masterful job of curating and translating this collection of short stories. Each story reflects a passion for baseball and a recognition that the sport and its lessons are omnipresent, reflecting and informing and mimicking real life. Most of these stories also tend to be infused with a wonderful mysticism that both reflects and then slyly tweaks its gringo counterpart. — Reviewer Paul Hagen, mlb.com
