In all of these years we have awarded quite a few players. Some have stood out and in this picture, Mariano Rivera is seen in a moment where he is appreciating a great laugh with Latino Sports president and founder, Julio Pabón as he is about to receive one of the seven LatinoMVP awards he had won during his career with the Yankees.
