Rumbo a las Grandes Ligas is a touching and beautifully-crafted documentary. Well-suited for the Spanish classroom, it transports viewers to a place where baseball is much more than a game…the Dominican Republic.
Through interviews, scenery, stories of fame, drama, and dreams, students experience the emotions and meaning attached to el béisbol. An English subtitle feature is provided, along with scene selection for ease of instruction and presentation.
The DVD Guide includes vocabulary, reproducible activities, and projects that are organized by scene. There are eight documentary scenes in all, entitled MLB Tryout, Vladimir Gomez, Juan Cabrera, Mets Camp, David Ortiz, Miguel Mercedes, Vladimir Guerrero, and Big Leagues. Each will educate, inspire, and entertain.
