Everyone Should Know About These Latino MLB Legends

Although a stellar career, Alomar’s legacy was marred by an altercation in 1996 with umpire John Hirschbeck, where he clearly spit into the official’s face. Things didn’t end there, with Alomar stating on the record that the umpire had made a racial slur to him and was bitter for tragic deaths in his family, with Hirschbeck needing to be restrained in the locker room that day to avoid going after Bobby. Fortunately, they settled their differences and are great friends today. Alomar was inducted in the MLB Hall of Fame in 2011, in his second year of eligibility. He was the first Blue Jay ever enshrined in Cooperstown. He has also been named to the Ontario Sports Hall of Fame. He resides in Toronto.
