Adrian González started off challenging teammate Enrique Hernandez to put an accent mark on his jersey, but he hasn't stopped there.
Now the first baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers has also celebrated other Latino players on other teams who have exercised the option to put the accent mark on their official MLB jerseys. Recently, González posed with Cuban player Yoenis Cespedes, with both players showing off their names correctly marked with the Spanish accent mark. Cespedes plays for the New York Mets, but rivalries were put aside as he and González honored their Hispanic heritage.
While some have praised the #PonleAcento campaign as an important recognition of Latino athletes, others have questioned if it's empty symbolism, as opposed to a more meaningful step at a time when MLB lacks any Latino managers.
