This is a must-read book. Learn about the history of a Latino tournament that reunited the community through the game of basketball every year. The richness of the Latino flavor doesn’t get any better.

In 1986, Victor Alvarado founded the Oregon Latino Basketball Tournament in Woodburn, Oregon. After the fifth year, the tournament paused for five years. Anthony Veliz revived this mega event and continued what Victor had started. The tournament continued for ten more years under Anthony’s leadership, then Rolando Ramirez stepped up as the director for the next thirteen years. The challenges and successes are incredible. This annual event must continue for the younger generations.

The tournament started with ten teams, then grew to thirty-six teams! Latinos and Latinas were motivated to play their best to showcase their talents. Many went on to play college basketball, and some even professionally. Inspiring Latino stories and more are inside. The resiliency is extraordinary.

The festivities, authentic Mexican food, and exciting games were so inspiring that this became like a family reunion every year in March. Relationships were built and memories were developed to where they had become life-long lasting.

Harness racing has been and still is a sport that draws in famous people like celebrities and athletes. George Forman, for instance, has owned more than twenty horses since 1991.

Owners and trainers play an important role in the harness business, but it is the drivers who are the real stars. They possess not only courage, but have to make quick and precise decisions that develop into wins and losses. The trainers turn out the horses, but the drivers are the ones who sit behind those horses and transfer that training into big money.

This is the story of driver Ray Smith, well known and respected on the race circuit. Ray’s career in harness racing ended in a terrible accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down. He endured a seven-year recovery and eventually got feeling back and was able to walk again. Follow Ray’s story that takes us behind the scenes of the race industry and exposes the life of a driver. It is as dangerous as it is exhilarating, and yet young men and women have been drawn to it for decades.

Pat Dean returns to his niche of sports writing with his second publication, What If? How the Course of Sports History Could Have Changed. Dean, fresh off the surprise sensation of previous book Poemology, gives sports fans a delicacy with how key events in sports history could have been altered. In baseball, Jackie Robinson could have played football and competed at the Olympics for gold medals instead of breaking the color barrier. Or in basketball Kobe Bryant could have ended up being a Philadelphia 76er joining Allen Iverson after playing basketball at Duke University. In football what would have happened if Jim Brown did not retire early? Or how close was Sidney Crosby of playing hockey for the Mighty Ducks? Would Muhammad Ali go the distance with Joe Louis in a 15 round fight? What If? explores these possibilities and informs sports fans of things they never knew before.
