Her unique contribution to her field is FASCINATING!! This relatively new mommy is a Major League Baseball (MLB) enthusiast who studied the sociology of sport. She looked at immigration policy and how changes to policy between 1871 and today have facilitated or restricted immigration growth within MLB and how those changes impacted the ball players and the sport.
