About La Gaceta de la LNP

“I would be lost without baseball.
I don’t think I could stand being away from it as long as I was alive.”

Roberto Clemente

If anyone could make a case for baseball being absolutely vital to their existence, it would be The Great One, who became the first Latine player in the Baseball Hall of Fame, and even now stands tallest among the hundreds of Puerto Rican players who've played in the American leagues. Clemente played the greatest sport on Earth with undeniable skill and incomparable verve, and nearly all the compatriots who have followed him to the United States have cited him as an inspiration for their own careers.

What we provide is a look at a world where neither Clemente nor his countless successors needed to go anywhere to follow their dream of playing professional baseball, because it was already present in Puerto Rico—admittedly, a very different Puerto Rico, to whom the forces of history permitted liberation long before the 1898 invasion put an end to the island's last hope of real autonomy.

Each year, we follow closely one of the 78 teams of the Liga Nacional Puertorriqueña, showing you not only what their players achieved, but how they lived, how they related to each other on and off the field, what gave them the desire to play ball, and plenty more to keep you occupied. We'll also cover each postseason in as much detail as we can, using copious amounts of data gathered by our valiant gaceteros over the last several years.

And most of all, because this is not our world, we may yet discover that its history was even stranger than we thought. That's where you come in, revered audience. You can—and we hope you do—help shape it.
