After 12 years in Major League Baseball and four more in the minor leagues, the name on Adrián González’s back had been missing one
thing important to any Latino player: the accent mark.
However, before a recent game, the Mexican-American slugger debuted his new Los Angeles Dodgers jersey with the fully correct
spelling of his name.
“After sixteen years in baseball, there was only one thing I needed to put an accent on he wrote on Instagram, before challenging
teammate Enrique Hernández do the same. He added the hashtag #PonleAcento.
Hernández, who is from Puerto Rico, accepted González’s challenge and shared his own jersey photo.
“Look how pretty Hernández looks with its accent. I already got it @adrian_eltitan, so now I invite all my Latino brothers to get their accent,” he captioned an Instagram post of his jersey.
