Unbeknownst to probably a decent lot of Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox fans, Wednesday was El Dia de la Raza at Toronto’s Rogers Centre.
Not L.A., Phoenix, Dallas, Houston, or even Chicago. But the province of Ontario in Canada. A fine cosmopolitan city where it can be argued that after hockey, soccer’s Toronto FC draws more fan interest than Blue Jays baseball. Nevertheless, Toronto is the home club of two of the preeminent Mexican American major-league ballplayers in the game – pitchers Ricky Romero and Sergio Santos – and both were at their best in the Jays’ 3-1 win over the Red Sox.
