Dodgers Inducted Into Latino Baseball Hall of Fame

The brand-new Latino Baseball Hall of Fame will honor 25 baseball greats on May 29, three of which have proudly represented the Dodgers.

 

Legendary Dodger Hall of Fame Spanish-language Broadcaster Jaime Jarrín, former Dodger pitcher and current international scout Camilo Pascual and former President and Owner of the Dodgers Peter O’Malley will all be inducted into the Hall, located in the Dominican Republic.

 

O’Malley’s induction is unique as he is the only non-Latin member of the inaugural class. He is receiving the Tommy Lasorda Award, named after the Dodgers’ Hall of Fame manager and given to “outstanding non-Latino personalities.”

 

The Ecuadorian-born Jarrín, who is in his 52nd season calling Dodger games, was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998.

 

Pascual, a seven-time All-Star from Cuba, pitched 18 seasons in the big leagues, including a stay with the Dodgers in 1970.  He went 174-170, striking out 2,167 batters.

 

The Dodger trio is being inducted alongside baseball legends Roberto Clemente, Rod Carew, Juan Maricial, Luis Aparicio and Orlando Cepeda.
