Well the Chicago White Sox would have you believe that "Dia Del Deporte" is not a Hispanic only event, but their marketing is all for the "Hispanic community" and features only Hispanic players. Jake at the Freedom Folks received an invitiation wherein it stated in Spanish "Companeros, wanted to share with you this information of an event where us podramos to feel proud of our race." That's nice.
Jake has more at the entry above on the differences in the Spanish and English promotional signs, but let me ask you one question. What would happen if it was a "white players only" day?
Go have a look at the signs.
The event is sponsored by U.S. Cellular, Telemundo and Pepsi.
I imagine that if it were an all white event, then some wimp would probably whine and moan about it just like you're doing
