Torii Hunter: Latino Players are Black 'Imposters': In a discussion about the number of black players in the Major Leagues, Los Angeles Angels center fielder Torii Hunter said during a USA Today-hosted committee to improve baseball panel that black Latinos don't count. "People see dark faces out there, and the perception is that they're African-American. They're not us. They're impostors. Even people I know come up and say: 'Hey, what color is Vladimir Guerrero? Is he a black player?' I say, 'Come on, he's Dominican. He's not black.' ... As African-American players, we have a theory that baseball can go get an imitator and pass them off as us. It's like they had to get some kind of dark faces, so they go to the Dominican or Venezuela because you can get them cheaper. It's like, 'Why should I get this kid from the South Side of Chicago and have Scott Boras represent him and pay him $5 million when you can get a Dominican guy for a bag of chips?' ... I'm telling you, it's sad." American black players have lamented the decline of Jackie Robinson's sport among their race in favor of basketball, football and other sports. Major League Baseball has 8% black players and 28% foreign at present.
