Hundreds of Latino players have passed through the American Major Leagues, but some always stand out above the rest. For the latter, the Latino Baseball Hall of Fame is a horizon for success.
The organization aims to highlight the contributions of Latino players and promoters in MLB after they retire from active sports.
The tenth ceremony of this type will take place at the end of 2023, for which the International Committee of Excellence of the Latin Baseball Hall of Fame announced the candidates.
