In Sunday’s Star Tribune, Joe Christensen wrote about what could be Tony Oliva’s last chance at a spot in Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame: The Latino Legends Team. Christensen writes that the Latino Legends Team "is baseball’s attempt to recognize the Latin-American history of the game, which was overlooked when no Hispanic players made the All-Century Team in 1999." He also argues that if Tony O has a chance to get in the Hall, he’ll need to be on the Latino Legends Team first.
It sure can’t hurt; and you can help. Major League Baseball is holding balloting at their website so go vote today! Balloting ends October 10.
It is an absolute shame that Oliva has not yet been voted into the Hall.
