Members of the Hispanic community who hace really knock it out of the park were inducted into the Hispanic Heritage Hall of Fame Saturday.
Just steps away from Yankee Stadium, in a community that has a lot of Hispanic pride, there were more than 10 people inducted into the Hispanic Baseball Hall of Fame.
These members were inducted for their hard work for the Hispanic baseball community. Some were journalists, others were volunteers who made life better for young Hispanic baseball players.
Even some Yankee bat boys accepted the honor. They spoke about pride in their heritage, and how important helping out the Hispanic community is, especially in certain neighborhoods in the Bronx.
Rodney Suarez accepted the honor on behalf of his late father’s work. "Activities like this and relations with the community and baseball very important," Suarez says. "My father was on the forefront of that, back in the 60s and 70s."
The Hall of Fame has over 75 members from 14 different countries, all connected by their hard work and love of baseball.
