Baseball Heritage: Part 2 (Countries of Origin and Other Groups)

japanese_sm (2)This year, major and minor league baseball teams have scheduled promotional nights to celebrate the racial and ethnic heritage of many Americans. Is your background Armenian, or do you want to learn more about Armenian Americans? If so, head out to Fresno California and catch the Fresno Grizzlies game on August 13.

Interested in Polynesian, Portuguese, Japanese, or Korean culture? The San Francisco Giants have heritage nights for those groups and many more. Or maybe you’re Slovenian or Hungarian. Then check out games in Lake County, Ohio, where the Lake County Captains have heritage nights for them.

Below is a list of Baseball Heritage Nights celebrating individuals for various countries and other cultural origins. Tomorrow I’ll post my final piece in this series, covering the remaining Baseball Heritage Nights.
