Oh, woe is San Diego:
It’s the only team in major league baseball — the only team in any of North America’s four major professional sports — with a Hispanic surname.
At a time when baseball celebrates itself as a model of ethnic diversity and internationalism — more than 30 percent of major leaguers are Hispanic, including many of its superstars — the Padres’ 25-man roster includes only two Latino players.
You think that’s a shame? Not one of the San Francisco Giants is over six-foot-five. Talk about unrepresentative.
