Tony Perez gets Hispanic Heritage Award

Congratulations Tony!

Tony Perez, a Baseball Hall of Fame inductee, is a recipient of this year's Hispanic Heritage Award.

The Cuban-born Perez was sent to the All-Star Game seven times during his years as first baseman for the Cincinnati Reds. He is currently a coach with the Florida Marlins.

Actually, I think Tony Perez's official title is Special Assistant to the President and not coach, but that doesn't matter.
