MLB Heritage Celebrations


17991985_10210450229270161_7373124005593779385_nSince I finally published the annual bobblehead list yesterday, I figured it was about time to publish the list of MLB heritage celebrations. I had the privilege of attending Korean Heritage Night at the Los Angeles Dodgers last year, and this year I just so happened to be in town for the Oakland Athletics’ Korean Heritage Night. Even if you’re not a member of the various groups below, there are a lot of cool things happening and you can learn a lot about other folks!
