  • MLB to Salute Latino Players

    The "Chevrolet presents the Major League Baseball Latino Legends Team" program was created to commemorate the storied history and immense contribution that players of Latin American heritage have made to Major League Baseball. As part of the program, a special ballot has been created featuring 60 Latino players representing seven different countries and territories. Representatives of Major League Baseball and the editorial staff at MLB.com, the official Web site of Major League Baseball, selected the current and former Latino MLB players who appear on the ballot. In addition, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum provided research services for the program.

    From August 29 through October 10, fans will be able to vote via English and Spanish ballots in participating Chevy dealerships nationwide, or online at MLB.com. Chevy will support the program with special ballot boxes and program themed point-of-sale materials in all of their participating Chevy dealerships.

    Fans will select eight position players, one at each infield position and three outfielders, three starting pitchers and one relief pitcher that will makeup the final "Chevrolet presents the Major League Baseball Latino Legends Team." Major League Baseball and Chevy will announce the 12 players selected by fans as members of the "Chevrolet presents the Major League Baseball Latino Legends Team" prior to Game Four of the 2005 World Series.
