You hear things like:
- "Latin players are dumb"
- "You can't win with only Latins"
- "Can't take a walk"
Stop. Just Fucking Stop
That is so fucking racial, myopic, and ignorant that it really bothers me.Yes there are numerous Latins that fit that description
but don't let a few bad apples ruin your perception. Latins love the game, are smart, and have mad heart. Pros like Rivera, Carew, and Clemente are revered for their ability, dignity, wisdom, and class.
Recently I caught up with 2011 Big Apple Rookie of the Year Christian Goris and asked him about the subject
Yes Christian is a hick but he is smart, gritty, and never quits. The Face of America is changing both on and off the field don't be afraid to embrace it.
