In the article, “Hispanic Heritage Month: Major League Baseball” (btwadmin, Sep 29, 2022) many Major League baseball teams have celebrated Hispanic heritage month in a variety of ways. For example, the Atlanta Braves have a day commemorated to recognize special Latino players and coaches. This special event is named “Los Bravos Night”, the day focused on the impact of the Hispanic and Latino community. Latinos have been increasingly participating in the MLB, roughly around 250 players out of 1,200 are of Latino descent. Great MLB players that originated from Hispanic/Latino communities are Roberto Clemente, Pedro Martinez, Mariano Rivera, Albert Pujols, and many more.
I am honestly proud of Latino MLB players for representing our Hispanic and Latino communities. New rising star players, like Juan Soto, Fernando Tatis, and Ronald Acuna, are changing the face of baseball. Baseball is America’s pastime’s greatest sport, and to see it come a long way, it has one of the most important legacies in all of the sports.
Now that you understand a little more about Hispanic Heritage Month’s celebration around MLB, what has your favorite MLB team done to honor Hispanic Heritage Month?
