In a sport where 27% of players are Hispanic, but few Latino fans are passionate about the game, MLB’s “Ponle Acento” (Put An Accent On It) campaign drove Hispanic players to embrace their heritage by adding accents to the names on their jerseys. This inspiring call to action was then adopted by US Hispanics at large, as they too joined this initiative to leave their mark both on and off the field. Soon the idea became a cultural movement that celebrities and fans joined by the millions, changing America’s pastime forever.
