On Sunday, the 18th of September, Fiesta Gigantes at Oracle Park, home of the Giants, was not stopped by the rain storm that invaded the Bay Area. Prior to the game the José Uribe Sportsmanship Award was awarded to Wilmer Flores, a San Francisco Giant Hispanic player who best exemplifies the character and sportsmanship of the late José Uribe, a former San Francisco Giant shortstop from the Dominican Republic who was a member oi the 1989 National League Champion San Francisco Giants, who went on to play the Oakland Athletics during the Loma Prieta-Earthquake stricken World Series.

Wilmer Flores was all smiles as he received the José Uribe Award from the museum Vice President and Co-Founder,,Amaury Pi-González, inside the Giants dugout prior to facing the LA Dodgers during the last game of the year against the all-time rivals. Wilmer is the most versatile player for the Giants this season and recently agreed to a two-year $13 million contract extension, including a mutual option for the 2025 season. He was gracious and humble as he accepted the José Uribe Award. The museum thanks Bertha Fajardo her staff and all involved in making this possible.

The Hispanic Heritage Baseball Museum Hall of Fame, founded in San Francisco in 1998, is committed to preserving the history and profound influence that Hispanic players have had on America’s favorite pastime.

The Hispanic Heritage Baseball Museum Hall of Fame, Founder and President Mr.Tito Avila Jr, and all of our Board of Directors, collaborators and friends, are very proud of our over 20 years commitment with the Hispanic community and all who love the game of baseball.
