"Los Rojos" helps recognize baseball's diversity

CINCINNATI -- The Reds' jerseys on Saturday looked a bit different than usual, as the team wore tops with "Los Rojos" on them for the first time in club history.

The uniforms, which are for sale in the Team Shop, are part of the Dusty Days celebration, which helps recognize the different cultures present in the Cincinnati area. Such events are held throughout baseball every year, and Venezuelan-born Cesar Izturis said it's appreciated by the players who make the game so culturally diverse.

"I appreciate it everywhere I've been," Izturis said. "Baseball is so big all over the world. It's one day for them, and they support this game, too. It's great for baseball."
