White Elephant: The Rise and Fall of Miami Baseball Stadium tells the remarkable story of one of South Florida’s most unforgettable architectural icons. The tale of Miami Stadium (a.k.a. Bobby Maduro Stadium) winds its way from its pristine field of dreams, to the turbulence of the Cuban Revolution; and from the hallowed halls of the U.S. Congress, to the tumultuous streets of Miami. The story weaves these seemingly disparate places and events into a fascinating web of social, political and personal intrigue. This book is about a ballpark designed for greatness, yet doomed to a future of unrealized potential. It is a story about a group of savvy visionaries, fueled by the magic of a city where fantasies have always been the common currency. And finally, it’s about a teenage boy prematurely thrust into the limelight’s uncomfortable glow in a town on the verge of history.
