dictator, baseball executive
Dominican Republic dictator Rafael Trujillo made himself a baseball executive and hired U.S. baseball all-stars to entertain his nation and distract them from The Parsley Massacre. More than 20,000 Haitians were butchered in the massacre (also called El Corte), killed with machetes or beaten with clubs and bats.
Learn who the all-star players were and much more in Chapter 45 of Weaponized Baseball.
