Her previous exhibit Many Voices, One Nation and accompanying anthology, Many Voices, One Nation: Material Culture Reflections on Race and Migration in the United States (Smithsonian Institution Scholarly Press, 2017), examined American cultural identity through immigration and migration. She is project director of the exhibit ¡Pleibol!

His books, Playing America's Game: Baseball, Latinos, and the Color Line (University of California Press, 2007) and Cuban Star: How One Negro League Owner Changed the Face of Baseball (Hill & Wang, 2011), have focused on the experience of Latinos within the United States as it illuminates processes of migration, racialization, identity, and labor in sport and society. He has consulted on museum exhibits and documentaries on Latinos and baseball, including the National Baseball Hall of Fame's ¡Viva Baseball! and Ken Burns's The Tenth Inning.
