A list of the best Hispanic baseball players. Hispanic baseball players have been interwoven in the fabric of Major League Baseball for years. They've been some of the greatest, well known names in baseball history. There are a bunch of Hall of Fame players on this list, who are rightfully enshrined in Cooperstown and are considered some of the greatest players of all time. The 1960s was when the first big wave of Hispanic players hit the big leagues. From this batch are some of the greatest Hispanic players of all time. Roberto Clemente, Juan Marichal, Orlando Cepeda and a slew of others made it normal for the notoriously MLB teams to mine the unchartered Latin American baseball waters. Due to the success of these players, Hispanic players began to populate many team's rosters.

Over the past few decades, Latino players have dominated the big leagues. These days, you're likely to see a huge percentage of superstars and future Hall of Famers like Miguel Cabrera, Albert Pujols, David Ortiz and the greatest relief pitcher of all time, Mariano Rivera. The number of Hispanic ballplayers on MLB teams has grown throughout the years and Hispanic players dominate many of the baseball rosters, from the big level down through the minor leagues.

The one thing they have in common is that they're considered the best Hispanic players. If you notice someone is missing from this list, feel free to add them.
