Celebration - Puerto Rico


Texas Rangers teammates from Puerto Rico, Iván "Pudge" Rodríguez and Juan "Igor" González were among baseball's best players in the 1990s.

Bat swung by Iván Rodríguez on October 1, 1999 for his 35th home run of the season, at the time a new mark for catchers, en route to winning the American League MVP Award

Wearing this jersey on June 17, 2009, playing against the Texas Rangers, Astros catcher Iván "Pudge" Rodríguez caught his record 2,227th game, putting the 19-year veteran ahead of Carlton "Pudge" Fisk in games behind the plate.

San Francisco pitcher Jonathan Sánchez wore this cap during his July 10, 2009 no-hitter against the Padres. This ball is also from the Puerto Rican flame-thrower's gem that included only one San Diego base runner, who reached on an error.

On July 9, 2013, Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Ríos smacked this ball for a fifth-inning single, one of his six hits in six at-bats. The Puerto Rican-American tied the AL record for most hits in a nine-inning game with that performance.
