Confusion in the "Social Activism" section[edit]

Like his hero, Roberto Clemente, Delgado is a well-known humanitarian and peace activist, and has been open about his political beliefs. As part of the Navy-Vieques protests, Delgado was actively opposed to the use of the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico as a bombing target practice facility by the United States Department of Defense, until bombing was halted in 2003. He is also against the occupation of Iraq. In the 2004 season, Delgado protested the war by silently staying in the dugout during the playing of God Bless America during the seventh inning stretch. Delgado does not make a public show of his beliefs...

Uh... what? BrainRotMenacer (talk) 00:01, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Maybe it should say "Delgado does not always make a public show of his beliefs." Or we could remove that part and begin the sentence like: "His teammates were not aware of his views until..." Blackjays1 (talk) 13:15, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
No, then we would be assuming his teammates were unaware. Removing the assertion seems sensible, it clearly contradicts this quote: "It takes a man to stand up for what he believes." - Caribbean~H.Q. 16:53, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Confusion over "Puerto Rican" players[edit]

Reggie Jackson is on Puerto Rican ancestry, but is not a native of Puerto Rico. He is from Pennsylvania. Carlos Delgado is a native of Puerto Rico, and that is why he is the leader in many statistical categories among Puerto Ricans. Dm23avg307, stop changing this as you are incorrect.
