Judy Heredia stood on the side of Civic Center Drive Downtown as the parade passed, clutching a Mexican flag with both hands and waving vigorously.

“Viva la Mexico! Whooooooo!” Heredia applauds. Long live Mexico.

But the parade that took place along the Scioto River was not just about Mexico and the parades proudly displaying Mexican flags.

It was also about those in the parade who hailed from Chile and its Andes mountains in South America and the Dominican Republic and its proud baseball heritage in the Caribbean. From Bolivia and El Salvador, Brazil, Argentina and Puerto Rico, all are now settling in the Great Columbus.

“It’s very heartwarming. It’s about bringing the Hispanic community together,” said Heredia, who is originally from Polina in western Mexico but now lives in Whitehall.

“We are here, and we are here to stay,” she said.

It was this sense of community that was clear among the hundreds of people in attendance at the parade and the onlookers watching them, no matter where they or their families came from.

Deogo Gutierrez adjusts his

The parade has started Latin/Hispanic Heritage Month in Columbus. Organizers emphasized Latin (lah-TEE’-nay) because the term is gender neutral and Spanish.

Columbus City Council member Lourdes Barroso de Padilla, a Columbus native of Cuban descent, said at least 30 countries were represented in the parade, the first of its kind in Columbus.

Barroso de Padilla has helped coordinate the effort with 20 to 30 community members since late spring.

Javier Marías, a renowned Spanish author who used multi-layered plots and complex literary structures to explore the labyrinths of espionage, smoldering obsessions and tipping points between commitment and betrayal, died on September 11 in his home in Madrid. He was 70 years old.

His death was announced by his Madrid publisher, Alfaguaraciting pneumonia as the cause.

Mr. Marías’ body of work – more than 15 novels and collections of short stories and essays – was hugely popular in the Spanish-speaking world and translated into dozens of languages, including English. It sold nearly 9 million copies, led by its three-book spy saga “Your Face Tomorrow” often considered his masterpiece.

He remained less well known in the United States, however, despite American connections through his father’s academic positions and reviews that often placed him among famous contemporary authors such as Orhan Pamuk, JM Coetzee and Paul Auster.

The dominant themes of Mr. Marías’ novels were very varied: mysterious murders, international espionage, family secrets, etc. He could keep it light or get graphically violent. Yet all of his novels had a heavy layer of emotional and moral fog that left the characters – sometimes interpreters and translators as he once was in real life – trying to grope their way through.

“He wrote thrillers like a poet”, said a tribute to the author in the Guardian.

Mr. Marías has often spoken of memory as having its own intrinsic weight. The past always puts pressure on the present, he told interviewers. It can be as personal as a memorized conversation. Or as collective as the repression of the dictatorship led by General Francisco Franco in Spain from 1939 to 1975.

He built his prose like scaffolding to support the weight of his characters’ memories, decisions, and dilemmas. He could create sentences of several hundred words. Adjectives and adverbs grow everywhere. He could veer off into rabbit hole digressions that could go on for dozens of pages.

In “Your Face Tomorrow,” a 1,274-page three-volume spy tale first published in Spanish as “Tu Rostro Mañana” between 2002 and 2007, Mr. Marías takes 150 pages to fully unfold a scene in which someone is almost killed by a sword.

“A description is also a digression, just like dialogue,” he said. said in 2017. “You could do without these things. Writing is precisely that, rummaging and digressing.

This style almost always worked, giving Mr. Marías a reputation as a virtuoso storyteller whose canvas was much bigger than the story itself in the mold of Marcel Proust or Herman Melville.

“As in the best novels and the most successful magician’s acts, one emerges heavy with emotion, wondering how he succeeded,” said a 1997 review in the Sydney Morning Herald of the English translation of “Un Corazón Tan Blanco”. or “A Heart So White,” an elliptical plot in which a performer realizes he barely understands his family or himself.

This kind of onion-skin plot was Mr. Marías’ favorite terrain. Its main characters have often faced moral ambiguities and crossroads. In the epic “Your Face Tomorrow” – a reference to Shakespeare “Henry IV” when eldest son Hal begins to realize he is turning against his former companions – a Spanish translator is recruited by British intelligence but later questions his role as an interpreter and all the prison cell stands for. ‘spying.

His imaginary worlds oscillate between the moral dullness of John le Carré’s spy novels and the allegorical significance of Miguel de Cervantes’ “Don Quixote”. Fiction, he said, can be more reliable than reality in getting closer to truths.

John le Carré, who elevated spy novels to literature, dies at 89

“The only things that can be fully said, without rectification, without the possibility of someone saying, ‘No, no, no, no, no. It’s not like that, it’s fiction,” Mr Marías told the Danish arts website. Louisiana Channel in 2018.

In his own life, Mr. Marías also presented many aspects.

He held libertarian views skeptical of the government, but praised the way the European Union helped Spain become “a normal European country” after the dictatorship. He sometimes supported the national agreement, the “pacto de olvido”, or pact of oblivion, after Franco’s death prevented blame from being cast on his regime for decades; other times he wondered if the pact left the country in a psychological straitjacket.

In Madrid, he rented two almost identical apartments near the Plaza Mayor. One had dark furniture, the other had the same decor in white. A Paris review The reporter wrote that both were cluttered with stacks of books, DVDs of American movies (many of which featured comedian Jerry Lewis) and TV series such as “Bonanza” and “Friends.”

He liked to playfully note that his own literary journey began in resolutely unchic Paris in the summer of 1967 by helping his filmmaker uncle, Jesus Francowhich produced mainly low-budget films such as “In the Castle of Bloody Lust” and Marquis de Sade: Justine with Jack Palance and Klaus Kinski. The B-movie sets became the backdrop for Mr. Marías’ first novel, “Los Dominios del Lobo” (“The Domains of the Wolf”) in 1971.

Mr. Marías enjoyed being the “king” of the imaginary monarchy of Redonda, a veritable uninhabited Caribbean island in Antigua and Barbuda that was proclaimed a self-proclaimed “kingdom” by an eccentric shipping magnate in the late 19th century.

Redonda has become something of a whimsical realm for authors, artists and others who create what is commonly referred to as a “intellectual aristocracy”. Mr Marías became “Xavier I” in 1997 after the abdication of British author Jon Wynne-Tyson, who had once visited the island. Mr. Marías never succeeded.

“I’ve never been monarchical,” he joked in a tongue-in-cheek interview with the Paris Review.

‘Dialogue’ as translator

Javier Marías Franco was born on September 20, 1951 in Madrid, the son of writer Dolores Franco and Julián Marías, a philosopher who opposed Franco’s nationalist side during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939 and was threatened with execution after the takeover of Franco’s forces. (Mr. Marías’ mother’s last name has no relation to the dictator.)

Mr. Marías’ father was banned from teaching and held two visiting professorships in the United States, first at Wellesley College in Massachusetts and then at Yale University in Connecticut. This experience gave young Mr. Marías a foundation in English that he would refine as a translator after graduating in 1973 with a degree in Philosophy and Literature from the Complutense University of Madrid.

From 1983 to 1985, Mr Marías lectured at Oxford University on translation theory – and used his time there as fodder for “All Souls” (1989) about a fictional relationship between a student and a visiting Spanish teacher.

Many literary observers, such as the University College London professor Gareth J. Wood, has made connections between Mr. Marías’ expressive style and his ability to convey nuances and complexities in Spanish “in dialogue” with writers such as Laurence Sterne, Thomas Browne, Vladimir Nabokov and William Faulkner.

Mr Marías said his ideal literature school “would require students to know at least two languages ​​and translate books”.

Survivors include his wife of four children years, Carme López Mercader, editor; two stepchildren; and three brothers. Complete information about the survivors was not immediately available.

Among his awards were the 1997 Dublin International Literary Prize for “A Heart So White” and Spain’s highest literary award for crime history. “The Infatuations” (2011). He turned down the Spanish award, saying he didn’t want to be seen as “favoured” by the government.

In the book, he may have taken a self-deprecating swipe at the Nobel Committee for never receiving the prize. A secondary character, a pompous author, has already written his Nobel acceptance speech — in Swedish.

IOC delays decision on host city for 2030 Olympics until September 2023 at earliest https://faaeeantrapologia.com/ioc-delays-decision-on-host-city-for-2030-olympics-until-september-2023-at-earliest/ Sat, 10 Sep 2022 07:00:32 +0000 https://faaeeantrapologia.com/ioc-delays-decision-on-host-city-for-2030-olympics-until-september-2023-at-earliest/ A decision by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to postpone next year’s general assembly by at least about four months could give promoters of Vancouver’s bid for the 2030 Winter Olympics more time to work out their bid plans and agreements.

A decision by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to postpone next year’s general assembly by at least about four months could give promoters of Vancouver’s bid for the 2030 Winter Olympics more time to work out their bid plans and agreements.

In a Thursday press conferenceJames Macleod, IOC Olympic Solidarity and NOC Relations Director, said the 140th IOC Session which was scheduled to be held in Mumbai, India, in May 2023 will now be moved to September or October 2023 at the earliest. .

This is due to what he describes as “ongoing internal disputes, governance shortcomings and ongoing lawsuits” with the Indian Olympic Association (IOA), which is the National Olympic Committee (NOC) of the country. ‘India. Similar reasons for the Guatemalan NOC also led to its suspension this week.

The main problem with India is the political struggle within the AIO. IOC calls on IOA to hold its quadrennial leadership election no later than December 2022 or face sanctions including potential banning of Indian athletes from future Olympics and other competitions under the Indian national name and flag.

The IOC Executive Board will decide in December 2022 whether to maintain Mumbai as the host city of the IOC Session in September/October 2023 or move it outside India.

IOC officials also stressed that in any case, the host city of the 2030 Games will be decided during this IOC Session, where and when it will be held. For the 2010 Games, they were awarded by the IOC on July 2, 2003 during the 115th IOC Session held in Prague, Czech Republic.

But it remains to be seen whether the schedule for the IOC’s selection of Candidate Cities for the advanced “targeted dialogue” stage of the 2030 Candidature Process will be maintained for December 2022. As part of the IOC’s flexible reforms for the Candidature Process , the timeline for starting the targeted bidding process could possibly be pushed back to early 2023.

Currently, the IOC is nearing the end of its “ongoing dialogue” phase with potential candidate cities for 2030.

If the “targeted dialogue” stage is moved to a later date after 2022, it could potentially benefit First Host First Nations and the efforts of the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) to bring the Winter Games back to British Columbia. .

All cities in British Columbia, especially Vancouver, are in the midst of a civic election cycle, with a vote date scheduled for October 15, 2022. Vancouver’s new city council will hold its inaugural meeting in early November 2022.

Provincially, BC Premier John Horgan is retiring, and a new party leader for the BC NDP – effectively becoming the new premier – is unlikely to be chosen until the start. December 2022 at the earliest. The provincial government is expected to make a decision on its support for the Indigenous-led 2030 bid before the end of this year.

Earlier this summer, City of Vancouver staff expressed some concerns about whether the timeline to reach a multi-stakeholder agreement among all stakeholders involved is achievable by December 2022.

The COC then clarified that the multi-party agreement, which is not required by the IOC and is only a local precedent set by the 2010 bid, can be finalized by February 2023 at the latest.

Based on the IOC’s current schedule, the most complex deals are negotiated with the IOC as needed, if Vancouver’s bid is invited to “targeted dialogue”. This work was originally scheduled to be completed at the end of March 2023.

Despite major internal/domestic challenges with Vancouver’s bid, it can still be considered a frontrunner.

Vancouver faces potential competition from Salt Lake City, Utah (host city of the 2002 Winter Games), Sapporo, Japan (host city of the 1972 Winter Games) and Barcelona, ​​Spain (host city of the 1992 Summer Games).

The Spanish region of Catalonia, home of Barcelona, ​​intends to submit a solo bid for the 2030 or 2034 Games after a co-host bid concept with the adjacent region of Aragon fell apart earlier this year due to infighting. But this new direction still requires the blessing of the Spanish NOC.

Since this week, the Sapporo’s potential supply is in troubled watersaffected by a corruption scandal of the Japanese organizing committee of Tokyo 2020. A visit planned this month by the mayor of Sapporo to the headquarters of the IOC in Switzerland has therefore been canceled.

And in recent months, Salt Lake City has signaled that it may be more inclined to bid for 2034, while keeping the door open for 2030. That’s largely because of timing – the Los Angeles Summer Olympics. Angeles 2028, much more important, takes place only 18 months before. the 2030 Winter Games. Theoretically, this could cause back-to-back US Olympics to compete for the same group of domestic sponsors and harm the financial viability of both Games, especially LA 2028, which takes precedence.

After receiving approval from the Boston Landmarks Commission, Mayor Wu, and City Council, the Highland Park neighborhood of Roxbury became Boston’s newest Architectural Preservation District on June 29, 2022! The purpose of the Architectural Conservation District designation is to allow members of the Highland Park community to have a voice in shaping their neighborhood, and to protect and enhance the unique heritage of the Highland Park neighborhood.

44 years of creation
Highland Park Water Tower

The petition to designate Highland Park as an architectural conservation district was first submitted to the Boston Landmarks Commission in 1978. At the time, the idea of ​​designation lacked broader neighborhood support, so the designation effort stalled. Interest was revived periodically over the following decades. In 2018, after several years of raising awareness in the neighborhood that culminated in a signature drive that showed strong support for the Architectural Preservation District, a group of neighborhood supporters from the Highland Park Neighborhood Coalition Preservation Committee revived the petition demand. at the BLC. A study committee was formed of 6 neighborhood residents and 5 landmark commissioners. Remarkably, one of the original signers of the 1978 petition, Ernest (Randy) Coston, was a member of the study committee that finally completed the designation effort 44 years later!

Reach out to the community

In addition to reviewing, revising and adding to the Highland Park study report produced by a consultant, the study committee also undertook the important task of community outreach. The committee has made it a priority to reach as many Highland Park residents as possible, including those who may not have internet access or who speak a language other than English. To this end, in addition to using email and social media, the Committee printed thousands of paper flyers in English, Spanish, Haitian Creole and Somali and distributed them throughout the neighborhood. Community outreach events were held both virtually using Zoom and in-person in the community (outdoors due to the Covid pandemic).

A unique neighborhood

It was clear that Highland Park would be a unique district when the study committee began developing the guidelines and they decided to cast the model based on standards from other Boston districts. The study committee wanted to start from scratch and write fully personalized guidelines. They wanted to avoid strict regulations that could be financially burdensome for a mixed-income community. They also wanted to recognize that the change was part of Highland Park’s history and that the guidelines should allow for a degree of flexibility. After extensive deliberation, the review committee produced a set of guidelines it deemed appropriate for the district. The draft study report was publicly released in February 2022, opening a 60-day period for public review and comment before a public hearing. After reviewing public comments, the study report was revised and republished for a second public hearing. Hearing the strong support expressed by community members, the Boston Landmarks Commission voted unanimously in favor of the district on May 10, 2022. The designation also received enthusiastic support from Mayor Wu and the City Council, receiving full approval June 29, 2022. .

About Highland Park
Elliot Square, late 1800s Photo courtesy of Historic New England

The Highland Park area is also known as Fort Hill or Roxbury Highlands. The district is historically significant with respect to the social and cultural history of the native population, the people of Roxbury, the city of Boston, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the United States. Rather than representing a single identity or group, representatives of many different social groups produced a rich fabric of many dwelling styles intermingled with places of worship and a few places of business. The past activities of all these people are clearly identified in the landscapes, buildings and improvements they fashioned: the Native Americans who occupied the area for thousands of years; the first settlers; and later immigrants from all over Europe and more recently from Africa, Central America, the Caribbean and other places.

The Highland Park ACD is also architecturally significant as a collection of building styles and types that demonstrate Roxbury’s development from an agricultural settlement to a fashionable 19th-century streetcar suburb of Boston, and finally to a dense urban district. Buildings in the neighborhood span over 250 years and offer a nearly complete array of architectural styles and types found in Boston.

Some historical highlights:
  • Boston, including Roxbury, is the traditional homeland of the people of Massachusetts, who are still there. Native people have been in the area for at least 12,500 years. The Highland Park area was a cultural and transportation center for the people of Massachusetts.
  • In 1630, members of the Massachusetts Bay Company settled Roxbury near what would later become John Eliot Square, establishing small farms in the hilly but fertile uplands.
  • Roxbury was of strategic importance in the American Revolution. During the Siege of Boston (1775-1776), the two forts in the Roxbury Highlands were essential to the defeat of the British, who had occupied Boston.
  • In the 19th century, the development of Highland Park accelerated as the development of mass transit increased the connection to downtown Boston. The neighborhood began to transform into a fashionable suburb.

Why Republic FC winning the Open Cup would be even more amazing than you think https://faaeeantrapologia.com/why-republic-fc-winning-the-open-cup-would-be-even-more-amazing-than-you-think/ Fri, 02 Sep 2022 23:55:00 +0000 https://faaeeantrapologia.com/why-republic-fc-winning-the-open-cup-would-be-even-more-amazing-than-you-think/ If you’re an American football fan, you probably know that the last lower division team to win the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup was the Rochester Raging Rhinos – then of the USL A-League – in 1999.

If you’re an American football fan, you probably know that the last lower division team to win the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup was the Rochester Raging Rhinos – then of the USL A-League – in 1999.

But what if we look further afield at some of the typical strongholds of the global game?

Did you know that the last team to win the FA Cup in England as a lower division side was West Ham United in 1980?

What about Italy, where SSC Napoli were the last winners of the lower division of the Coppa Italia in 1962?

Or the Copa Del Rey in Spain, which has never been won by a lower division club since La Liga was formed in 1929?

By any measure, what USL Championship Sacramento Republic FC could accomplish in the 2022 Open Cup final against Orlando City SC next Wednesday night is extraordinary.

“When you say it like that, it’s a reminder of reality and what the guys have achieved in reaching the Open Cup final this year,” Republic FC head coach Mark Briggs said when asked. recently gave these figures. “You don’t realize, you know? You don’t really have time to think about what you’re doing with the current season, game after game after game, whether it’s in the league or in the Open Cup. When you listen to those numbers, it sure makes you sit up and congratulate the guys on what they’ve accomplished this year.

So why this team, and why now?

You can start with the talent the club has gathered during the offseason. Republic FC have revamped their squad, starting with the return of captain Rodrigo Lopez and veterans Matt LaGrassa and Nick Ross as part of a new midfield contingent built around the return of Luis Felipe Fernandes. 2020 Championship Golden Glove winner Danny Vitiello has been signed to hold the net.

There were also foreign talents. Douglas Martinez Jr. and Zeiko Lewis both brought high-level international experience with Honduras and Bermuda. Veteran Spanish winger Keko Gontan was joined by rising star and compatriot Damia Viader, USL League One Defender of the Year last year at Union Omaha. In the back line, Irish defender Lee Desmond – last year’s FAI Cup winner at St. Patrick’s Athletic – joined compatriot Dan Casey.

But as important as the on-field qualities these players brought, it was matched by the group’s personality in the dressing room, holding each other accountable to high standards, which has been key to the club’s success.

BERLIN (AP) – Germany is well prepared to deal with a possible energy shortage due to Russia’s pressure on European gas suppliesChancellor Olaf Scholz said on Tuesday, even as fears grow over rising prices will hit consumers across the continent this winter.

He spoke at the start of a two-day government retreat, also attended by Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, which focused on the impact that The Russian invasion of Ukraine has had on Europe’s energy supply.

Scholz cited Germany’s decisions to reactivate oil and coal-fired power plants, mandate the filling of natural gas storage facilities and lease floating liquefied natural gas terminals. A decision on extending the lifetime of the three remaining German nuclear power plants is also expected soon.

“All this and many other measures have put us in a much better position with regard to security of supply than could have been expected a few months ago,” Scholz told reporters at the government guest house in Meseberg, north of Berlin.

“We will be able to cope quite well with the threats we face from Russia, which is using gas as part of its strategy in the war against Ukraine,” he said.

Scholz noted that gas storage facilities are already more than 80% full, more than they were at this time last year, and the government is expected to agree further measures soon to help German consumers. to cope with the sharp increase energy price.

Russian state-controlled energy company Gazprom has further cut gas supplies to French firm Engie, raising fears that Moscow could cut gas completely as political leverage over the war in Ukraine.

Gazprom informed Engie of a reduction in gas deliveries, from Tuesday, due to “a disagreement between the parties on the application of several contracts”, according to the French energy company. Deliveries for Engie from Gazprom have fallen significantly since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, with a recent monthly supply of 1.5 TWh, which compares to Engie’s total annual supplies in Europe of over 400 TWh. , the company said.

Engie had already obtained enough gas to meet its commitments to its customers, the statement said, adding that it had also put in place measures to “significantly reduce any direct financial and physical impact” that could result from the interruption of the gas. gas supply from Gazprom.

Russia has cut off or reduced natural gas to a dozen countries in the European Union. Since the spring, EU leaders have been calling on the public to use less gas in the summer to build storage for the winter. The bloc has proposed that nations voluntarily reduce their use by 15%. He is also seeking the power to impose mandatory cuts in the 27-nation bloc if there is a risk of severe gas shortages.

France, like other European countries, is trying to strengthen its gas reserves for the winter and fill its stocks by the beginning of autumn to avoid an economic and political crisis on energy. In June, the French government launched an “energy sobriety” plan, aiming for a 10% reduction in energy consumption by 2024.

On Monday, French Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne urged businesses to draw up energy saving plans, warning businesses would be the first to be hit if the government were forced to ration gas and electricity due to severe shortages.

In an effort to wean themselves off Russian gas and reduce the climate impact of the energy sector, European countries have dramatically stepped up their efforts to build wind, solar and other renewables.

Seven Baltic Sea countries – Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Denmark – on Tuesday announced a sevenfold increase in wind power generation by 2030 in southern Europe. North in order to free the region from its dependence on Russian natural gas.

The countries agree to set combined targets for offshore wind in the Baltic Sea region of at least 19.6 GW by 2030. Current capacity in the Baltic Sea region is currently less than 3 gigawatts. According to the plan, up to 1,700 new offshore wind turbines would produce the equivalent power of nearly 20 nuclear power plants, providing enough electricity for up to 30 million homes.

“(Russian President Vladimir) Putin is using energy as a weapon and has brought Europe to the brink of an energy crisis with soaring prices,” Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said.

Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said the new plan will also allow countries “to have more affordable energy prices”, while his Latvian counterpart, Arturs Krisjanis Karins, said “it can be done if we work together”.

“It’s amazing. Up to 20 gigawatts by 2030,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said at the one-day Baltic Sea Energy Security Summit in Copenhagen. “This is already a third of the EU’s overall ambition for offshore wind capacity by 2030.”

The energy crisis has prompted some European countries to call for the relaunch of previously abandoned energy projects, such as a gas pipeline linking the Iberian Peninsula to the rest of Europe.

BOSTON — Baseball is already a global game.

Last Sunday, the Rays made it even more worldly.

Their batting order included players born in eight countries, the most for a game in modern history (since 1900), according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

This included Brandon Lowe (USA), Manuel Margot and Jose Siri (Dominican Republic), Randy Arozarena (Cuba), Harold Ramirez (Colombia), David Peralta (Venezuela), Isaac Paredes (Mexico), Yu Chang (Taiwan) and Christian Bethancourt (Panama).

And the Rays could have made it a complete mix had Ji-Man Choi (South Korea) been in the lineup rather than Margot or Siri. (Their achievement was first noted on Twitter by DJ Rice (@TheReddDJ).

The last team to have players from eight countries on the pitch together, according to Elias, was the 2014 Rangers, which included pitcher Yu Darvish of Japan.

The confluence of cultures creates an interesting clubhouse dynamic, but the Rays make it work.

Baseball is a universal enough language and most players know enough English to communicate on everyday matters. Coaches Rodney Linares and Brady North speak Spanish, as do several other staff members. Additionally, the team has full-time Spanish and Korean interpreters, another on-call for Chang (Mandarin), and three staff members who speak Japanese if needed.

“It’s really cool,” said general manager Peter Bendix. “It’s really cool to see how everyone works together in this clubhouse from different backgrounds. I’m not just talking about different countries, but this is an example.

“I think that speaks to baseball today. I think it speaks to our ability to go out and identify players. And I think it’s about these guys and their ability to walk into a clubhouse with people who might be like them or who might be very different from them and create this winning culture.

And that shows something, manager Kevin Cash said.

“We pride ourselves on being diverse with our roster, which means different players have special skills,” he said. “Now we’ve reached another level of diversity in the clubhouse. And I think it’s really impressive how that diversity has interacted and embraced each other throughout the season.

Major League Baseball touts the diversity of its roster, noting that 275 of the 975 players on Opening Day rosters (and inactive rosters) this year — nearly 30% — represented 21 different countries and territories outside of the 50 states, corresponding to the highest number ever. .

This list includes, in order of having the most players, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, Colombia, Japan, Panama, Curacao, South Korea, Bahamas , Aruba, Australia, Brazil, Germany, Honduras. , the Netherlands, Nicaragua, Taiwan and the US Virgin Islands.

Pitcher Drew Rasmussen said he recently discussed the worldly nature of the game with Shin Fukuda, the Rays’ athletic trainer and acupuncturist from Japan.

“We were talking about how cool it is, just the game of baseball in general,” Rasmussen said. “You look at basketball and it covers some European countries and a bit of Asian markets as well. You look at football, it’s a lot of Latin American countries and a lot of Spanish countries. But baseball is really the only sport that I think covers the world. So it was really cool to see all the representation that we have.

“It’s a diverse locker room, although we joke about our pitching staff because they’re just white college guys – that’s who we are. But it’s really cool to see the mix of people we have here and the ability for everyone to get along. It’s just a crazy experience, but at the same time, it’s awesome.”

And, as Choi said, via performer Daniel Park, “Because there’s a lot of guys from different ethnic nationalities here, I feel like an all-star game.”
