The division series are under way and stealing a Yogi Berra’s phrase, "It’s not over until you win three."

It has become customary to see Latino players every year excel in a single moment or throughout a whole series.

So far, names such as the Texas Rangers’ Nelson Cruz and Vladimir Guerrero and the New York Yankees’ Robinson Cano and Jorge Posada are in full swing in support of their teams to go to the next round, the American League Championship Series.

Through history there have been Latinos that have distinguished themselves and carried their teams in division series since they were created in 1995.

This is my list of the most distinguished Latinos in division series:

  • Luis Alicea, Boston (1995), .600, 1 HR, 2RBI
  • Edgar Martinez, Seattle (1995), .571, 3 2B, 2 HR, 10 RBI
  • Juan Gonzalez, Texas (1996), .438, 5 HR, 9 RBI
  • Bernie Williams, New York Yankees (1996), .429, 2 2B, 2 HR, 5 RBI
  • Moises Alou, Chicago Cubs (2003), .500, 1 2B, 3 RBI
  • Carlos Beltran, Houston (2004), .455, 2 2B, 4 HR, 9 RBI
  • David Ortiz, Boston (2004), .545, 2 2B, 1 HR, 4 RBI
  • Albert Pujols, St. Louis (2005), .556, 2 2B, 2 RBI
  • Carlos Guillen, Detroit (2006), .571, 3 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI
  • David Ortiz, Boston (2007), .714, 2 HR, 3 RBI
  • Bobby Abreu, Los Angeles Angels (2009), .556, 2 2B, 1 RBI
