THE BRONX - A Latin superstar from the Bronx will be bringing Bachata to the ballpark this summer.

Romeo Santos was at Yankee Stadium Monday, announcing that he'll be the very first Latino artist to headline a concert there. 

The 32-year-old is the former lead singer of the Bachata group Adventura. 

The opportunity is a dream come true for Santos, who said he never imaged being able to return to his home for such a performance. 

He’ll take the stage on July 12
