Two Boricuas Being Considered For Baseball HOF

Mayaguez, PR: Today is a holiday in Puerto Rico; it is Three Kings Days, the Puerto Rican equivalent of Christmas in the states. Besides the cultural reasons for celebrating Three Kings, the fact is that it is much easier for young children here to believe in three kings bringing them gifts than a Santa Claus that would require snow to drive his reindeer.

This Three Kings Day is going to be a very special day for not just the children of Puerto Rico, but for the entire island since today two Puerto Ricans, Roberto Alomar and Edgar Martinez will be considered for induction into the prestigious baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.

Thus today, Three Kings Day is a great day for Puerto Rican, Latino baseball lovers and fans of both, Edgar Martinez and Roberto Clemente to feel proud that both are being considered and that at least one will have a good opportunity to enter the hall of baseball immortals. In baseball terms and stats that is a .500%, not bad odds at all. Therefore, Boricuas here and in the states will be paying close attention to see the results of the ballots that were submitted by the members of the National Baseball Writers Association of America (BWAA) today in New York City.
