Alex Rodriguez had one of the best performances ever by a Latino in League Championship Series.

 

Mariano Rivera added to his Hall of Fame-bound career after another superb outing and once again he showed the world why he is possibly the best closer in a postseason series.

 

Both “A-Rod” and Mariano will play against a Philadelphia Phillies team that will not be easy to defeat.

 

Skipper Charlie Manuel is looking to make history as the first Phillies team to repeat as World Champions.

 

Manuel will rely on the arm of Pedro Martinez and the red-hot bats of Carlos Ruiz and Pedro Feliz.

 

On paper, this Phillies-Yankees World Series looks to be one of the best ever.

 

Throughout history, most seasons see a Latino player excel in a single moment or throughout a whole series.

 

This is my list of the 15 most distinguished Latino players in World Series action:

 

•Roberto Clemente, Pittsburgh, 1971, .414, 2 2B, 1 3B, 2 HR, 4 RBI

•Tany Perez, Cincinnati, 1975, .179, 3 HR, 7 RBI
