NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2006 /PRNewswire/ -- "The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum today unveiled a five-year relationship with the CITGO Petroleum Corporation to salute the unique impact of Latino baseball on America's national pastime. Titled Baseball! Beisbol!(TM), the Hall of Fame-CITGO celebration will be a multi-faceted campaign, highlighted by a pair of dynamic exhibits that will travel throughout the United States beginning in 2006. CITGO is the exclusive national sponsor of Baseball! Beisbol!(TM).... Among other initiatives, the five-year Hall of Fame-CITGO partnership will also include: ...* An exchange program aimed at forging a closer and more productive
  • relationship between curators in Cooperstown and their counterparts at the Caribbean and Latin American halls of fame;
  • * A multi-cultural advisory panel of experts to ensure that partnership initiatives reflect the uniqueness of Latino baseball; and
  • * The translation into Spanish of key Hall of Fame documents for Museum visitors, as well as the Hall's famous plaques on the Hall of Fame's Web site....
CITGO, based in Houston, ... is an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A., Cooperstown welcomes a corrupt Venezuelan dictatorship, but the same association is
  • denied to Marvin Miller. No one who seeks a financial future in any way related to MLB will stick their neck out on this subject. Birds of a feather. (sm)
