On Roberto Clemente Day, today's Rays lineup consisted of nine Latino players--a first in MLB history, 51 years to the month after the Pirates fielded the first all-black lineup in MLB history. Nice touch! What Latinos have brought to the game of baseball is immense and the game would surely not have been the same, particularly over the last 60 years.

That is a nice nod to Clemente's legacy but why in the world were the Pirates playing in New York on that day? Question

Probably because some scheduler thought New York is the center of the universe for all such historic commemorations. Rolling Eyes I do agree that was not appropriate!
