There is an old but touching joke about a Mexican immigrant attending his first baseball game in America. José is calling back home to tell his mother just how wonderful his new homeland is. He tells her that, while sitting in Yankee Stadium just before the game, everyone stood up and sang, asking, “José can you see?” He goes on, “That was very nice of the people to ask if I had a good seat.”
Today things have changed. Were José in Chase Stadium, Phoenix attending his very first game, the ‘seeing’ thing would be José’s papers.
