Carlos Baerga, Alvaro Espinoza to speak Sunday evening at Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage
Tribe alumni Carlos Baerga and Alvaro Espinoza will participate in an “evening of Latino legends” at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage on Sunday evening, after the Indians series against the Tampa Bay Rays concludes in downtown Cleveland.
From 4PM-6PM, Tribe fans can tour the museum’s “Chasing Dreams: Baseball and Becoming American” exhibit, an interactive, artifact-filled exhibition celebrating barrier breakers exploring how societal values have played out through America’s pastime.
At 6PM, Baerga and Espinoza will participate in a moderated discussion hosted by Indians VP Bob DiBiasio; the chat will include the duo’s careers in Cleveland, the 195 World Series team and the prolific career of Roberto Clemente. Clemente, from Puerto Rico like Baerga, died in a plane crash during a humanitarian aid mission to Nicaragua.
