Puerto Plata, R.D.-For having become the Latin American pitcher to get the most victories for a Latino pitcher in organized baseball in the United States, the native Altamira pitcher Bartolo Colon must be recognized in the Senate of the Dominican Republic.

The representative of the Puerto Plata province in the Upper House states that right-handed pitcher Bartolo Colon, now of the Texas Rangers, believes that because of his achievements in demanding Major League Baseball, he deserves such recognition as he has set the high name of the Dominican Republic.

Paliza Nouel, presented before the Senate of the Dominican Republic the draft resolution that gives recognition to veteran Dominican pitcher Bartolo Colón.
