There are a number of strong arguments for watching 2012 feature-length documentary Pelotero which might reasonably be made by way either of spoken or written discourse. Like that it’s a revealing portrait of Dominican baseball, for example. Or that it’s an arresting portrait of baseball in the Dominican Republic, for other example.
Among the arguments one might make visually, however, there are few likely stronger than the one presented above of (what the author believes to be) Miguel Sano‘s younger brother Ernestico both in diapers and on a miniature police motorcycle. Is Ernestico prepared to protect and serve the citizenry of San Pedro de Macoris? “Yes,” one is forced to conclude. Is he entirely comfortable yet with making toilet? “Less so, probably,” is the answer to that second question.
