Yes, I realize those numbers are for the city of Cincinnati alone.
When you include the entire 15 county Greater Cincinnati area, it's 2.6% per the numbers at the Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati, USA. And rising.
So, not really a hell of a lot more, and I live and work all over town- west, east and north- but not NKY, and have not noticed any large increase.
I'm just wondering why the Reds chose to do this. They've had great Latino players for years, and have always been the Reds.
There's no question the Hispanic population in the US is booming; maybe it's in response to that.
