Tampa Bay Rays did not leave out any detail while honoring the first Latin American player to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Roberto Clemente. The team introduced a line-up with All-Latin born players on MLB’s Roberto Clemente Day and even trashed the Blue Jays with an 11-0 victory with the confidence that the got.

The Tampa Bay Rays’ line-up included players who were indeed born in a Latin American country, the line-up stated, Cuba (Díaz and Randy Arozarena), the Dominican Republic (Wander Franco, Manuel Margot and Jose Siri), Colombia (Harold Ramírez), Venezuela (David Peralta and Pinto) and Mexico (Isaac Paredes).

“That’s very good for the team and for every Latin player, and on this day it’s more special because it’s Roberto Clemente Day,” Tampa Bay Rays’ outfielder Ramírez said. “That happened on the right day. Everyone enjoyed it right after the game, because nobody knew.”

“We’re very happy, especially on a day like today,” Tampa Bay Rays’ 3 baseman and outfielder Yandy Díaz added through interpreter Manny Navarro. “I think the Latinos are really putting a stamp on the game of baseball.”

Tampa Bay Rays’ manager Kevin Cash said, “It’s pretty cool. I didn’t know that ’til halfway through the game; somebody mentioned it to me, but it’s very surprising, at the same point, just because of the Latino community and the impact they’ve had on Major League Baseball for so many years — and extremely fitting to be on Roberto Clemente Day.”

The Rays (80-63) won the fifth and final game of the series to pull within a half-game of the Blue Jays in the wild-card chase. Blue Jays righthander Kevin Gausman (12-10) allowed five runs and six hits in seven innings, snapping a streak of four straight winning decisions.
