Hispanic Heritage Month is officially from September 15 through October 15. However, many MLB clubs have already begun the celebration. On Monday, MLB issued a press release on the activities they will host during Hispanic Heritage Month (I still want to know how I can get a Ponle Acento shirt):
In addition, voting is underway for the 2018 Robert Clemente Award, which is “bestowed annually to the player who best represents the game of Baseball through extraordinary character, community involvement, philanthropy and positive contributions, both on and off the field.” You can vote at MLB.com/clemente21.
In a related note, last week, Bryce Harper wore specially-designed cleats in honor of Roberto Clemente Day. He also won National League Player of the Week last week. Just a coincidence?
