Summary

This pamphlet is an alphabetical English-Spanish listing of more than three hundred words, phrases, and sentences related to the game of baseball as it is reported in Mexico City, in border towns, and in Spanish language newspapers in the United States. At the end of this dictionary are listed the major league teams of the United States and Canada in English and Spanish. Many of the Spanish words are Mexicanized English, such as "el jomron" a homerun, and "el ampayer," the umpire, while others are taken directly from English, like "el pitcher,""el score," and "safe." The listings that are phrases and sentences are taken from newspaper reports of actual games. This pamphlet may be used in the Spanish classroom as a cultural item. It can also be employed in a bilingual program, in an English for special purposes course, or even for use in the media. (PJM)
