Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, the Players Association will be honoring baseball’s Hispanic contributions. Throughout Major League Baseball history, close to 2,000 players of Hispanic descent have been featured on big-league rosters. Today, they make up nearly 25% of the league's talent -- a number that continues to rise each season. The impact Hispanic major league players have had on their teams and the way the game is played is immense. 

The increase in Hispanic talent in Major League Baseball has improved the quality, style and culture of our game. In recognition of the growing presence of Hispanic Heritage in the baseball community, the MLBPA has designed nine graphics that depict players’ faces as well as iconic images of the cities and countries they call home. In addition, nine accompanying “Passport Series” graphics were designed in order to highlighting a player from each country and Puerto Rico.

Players with Latin American roots have and continue to play a vital role in shaping the way baseball is enjoyed around the world.
