Every MLB Team Will (Finally) Have A Spanish Translator This Season
Major League Baseball is requiring each team to hire a full-time Spanish interpreter this year. Almost 25% of big leaguers come from Latin America.By Grant Suneson | January 14, 2016
Come opening day, talking baseball will be a whole lot easier for Major League Baseball's Spanish-speaking players.
The commissioner mandated that each MLB team have a full-time Spanish translator on staff.
It’s somewhat surprising it's taken this long for such a rule to be put in place, since nearly a quarter of big-leaguers hail from Spanish-speaking countries like the Dominican Republic, Venezuela and Cuba.
