PHOENIX – This is one of the prime times of year when smart baseball franchises pay homage to their Latino players and fans and history with the individual clubs’ “Hispanic Heritage” day or night.
The Arizona Diamondbacks celebrated their 14th annual Hispanic Heritage Day on Sept. 16. It wasn’t contrived and it was respectful of Mexican culture, since most Latinos out here are of Mexican descent.
There was real lucha libre wrestling in a ring in the main plaza in front of Chase Field and Mexican folkloric dancers and mariachi in the concourse behind home plate. And the Diamondbacks players wore black “Los Dbacks” jerseys.
