DETROIT'S ORDONEZ TO RECEIVE LATINOMVP

on

Mags will be honored at Yankee Stadium Thursday.

Detroit Tigers star outfielder, Magglio Ordonez, will be honored this Thursday in New York City at a special ceremony at Yankee Stadium in recognition of his winning the 2007 American League LatinoMVP Award for his outstanding play last season.

Ordonez, who barely edged New York Yankees star third baseman, Alex Rodriguez, for the award, had an impressive 2007 campaign, winning the A.L. Batting title with a .363 average, the best by a Detroit Tiger since Norm Cash batted .361 in 1961. Ordonez also led the A.L. with 54 doubles, and had 28 home runs, 139 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of .434. Ordonez’ .363 average and 54 doubles led all Major League players in these categories.

The award, sponsored by the Latino Sports Writers & Broadcasters Association (LSWBA), is part of the prestigious LatinoMVP awards, and is voted on by over 50 sports writers and broadcasters catering to the Latino community throughout North America, South America and the Caribbean.

The event will be held at Yankee Stadium at 3:00 p.m. LSWBA members are invited to attend and must contact Byron Hunter at 718-402-9310 to confirm your attendance by no later than 10:00 a.m.
