The parents of Oscar and his sister Yolanda were immigrants who came to the U.S. from Mexico to work on other peoples ranches in southeastern New Mexico. That Oscar, who everyone assumed would follow in his fathers footsteps, should be discovered in high school and make his way up the ranks in professional baseball is a fascinating story in itself. But in addition to a central thread about Oscar, there is also the story of his father, who, after years of poverty, succumbed to a temptation that would have shattered a less loving family, and Yolanda, who chose to forgive the perpetrator of a heinous crime in order to avoid a lifetime of negativity and despair.
