Latino Baseball Hall of Fame inducts 2011 members

The Latin Baseball Hall of Fame was founded last year and inducted their second class on February 12, 2011.  Fourteen new members were inducted, and over 20 men were inducted in the inaugural year last year.  See the full list at the Salon de Fama del Beisbol Latino site.

The Dominicans now members of the hall are 2010 nominees Felipe Alou, Juan Marichal, and Tetelo Vargas, and the 2011 inductees Rico Carty and Horacio Martinez.

The induction ceremony has taken place in the resort city of La Romana, Dominican Republic the last two years and there are plans to build the hall in this city, though construction has yet to begin.
