35 years ago… before the internet, before social media, there was Fernandomania.   Fernando Valenzuela came from a small Mexican town in Sonora and captivated the “City of Angels” and the nation – becoming rookie of the year, pitcher of year and World Series champion in his first full season with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1981.   It wasn’t just a sports story – it was a human story of improbable implications and shared meanings between the United States and Mexico –  Valenzuela’s “eyes-toward-heaven” windup,  unhittable breaking balls and  his joy and competitive fire resonated with baseball fans and the public at large during that amazing year of  Fernandomania in 1981.
