Dave Zirin: Enrique Morones: The Man Who Would Move the Game

Dave Zirin: Enrique Morones: The Man Who Would Move the Game


Enrique Morones has been at the heart of the movement to move the 2011 Major League Baseball All-Star Game from the state of Arizona. As much as anyone in the United States, he is uniquely positioned to provide leadership on the connection between baseball and the rights of immigrants. For six years, Morones worked for the San Diego Padres as a Vice President in charge of connecting the franchise to the Latino community, Major League Baseball's first Department of Hispanic Marketing. In addition, Morones is the founder of Border Angels, an organization that leaves blankets, food and water on the rough desert terrain to provide tools of survival for people crossing the border.
