On Friday September 5th, the Salón de la Fama del Béisbol Latino (Latino Baseball Hall of Fame) announced the new luminaries for the Class of 2015 who will be inducted in February at the Altos de Chavón amphitheater. But that was not all! Because the following day the Latino Hall of Fame opened an interesting photo exhibit.
The photo exhibit, called Roving Exhibition Photographic displays the faces of all Latino players who have been inducted so far in the five year history of the Latino Baseball Hall of Fame. The purpose of this display is to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month alongside the Yankee Stadium.
The event had the sponsorship of our beloved Casa de Campo resort and many important personalities were present during the opening, among them; Mrs. Jennifer Steinbrenner, General Partner and NY Yankees Vice President; Manuel García, Director of Latino Affairs NY Yankees; Mr. Roberto Weill, Chairman and Founder of the Latino Baseball Hall of Fame; Sr. Tony Fernández, Latino Baseball Hall of Fame, Class of 2013; Carlos Delgado, future luminary – Class of 2015; Mrs. Gema Hidalgo, Listin Diario CEO and her husband Rafael Vargas; Mr. Daniel Hernandez, General Manager of the Casa de Campo Hotel; and Mr. Peter Bonell, Chief Marketing Officer for Casa de Campo.
