With both Johnny Cueto and Aroldis Chapman as premier pitchers for the club and other Latin players, not to mention a plethora of up and coming prospects from throughout Latin America, I think it makes smart business sense. I say this as an Anglo too. I've loved the Hispanic Heritage day the club has had the last couple of seasons too.
It's an ugly jersey, just like the BP jersey, and unnecessary in my opinion. I certainly won't be spending my money on one.
