There’s days when they don’t even agreeon which way the wind is blowing. But they agree on this.

If there wasn’t a kid named Cruz de laCruz, somebody would’ve come along and invented him.And no matter how weird and wild and tall the tale, no one, not even Blackjack Buck himself could’ve cooked up a mind-whacking brain-snapper as wild and woolbacious as what really happened.Why?Because Cruz de la Cruz, that cyber-vato desperado, not only saved el civismo, the very spiritof this town, he saved the holy game of Baseball as we know it.
