Virtual Voices of the Game: Manny Mota

Monday, January 18, 2021 - 2:00pm

Join us for a celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day with former major league outfielder Manny Mota. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination brought baseball to a halt in 1968. Mota was a member of the 1968 Pittsburgh Pirates, a team that refused to play on Opening Day after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.

A close friend of Roberto Clemente and a trusted player for Tommy Lasorda with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Mota forged a long career that spanned 20 seasons. He batted .304, earned an All-Star Game selection in 1973, and became one of the greatest pinch-hitters in major league history.
