The Minnie Minoso Story
This local documentary profiles White Sox legend Minnie Minoso, who in 1951 became Chicago's first black major league baseball player, later becoming the first black Latin American baseball star. The Cuban-born Minoso is the only professional player to play in seven different decades, during which he was an eight-time All-Star. His story is told through rare interviews with Chicago luminaries, friends, admirers, and never-before-seen footage of Minoso himself, shot by producer Tom Weinberg over the course of almost 40 years. For decades, Minnie Minoso has said, “Baseball's been very, very good to me.” And it's true.
