America's pastime

Dear Editor:America's pastime should now be called "Beisbol." Just look at the rosters of most MLB teams and you see them peppered by Spanish surnames like Netfali Feliz, Robinson Cano, Elvis Andrus, Mariano Rivera, Carlos Ruiz, Andres Torres, Juan Uribe, et al to name just a few. I hope that these players are required to speak English as we usually expect of our homegrown sports heroes. Not easily appreciated is the fact that these foreign players take high-paying jobs away from native American players. In the current economic malaise we should demand that high-paying jobs be reserved for Americans. -- Jorge Montero, Downey
