Day of the Dead Baseball TeamsPosted: January 15, 2014
Here’s an ofrenda created in memory of baseball teams throughout history that have relocated. For those who are not aware, ofrenda means “offering” in Spanish, and they are altars set up to honor and remember ancestors during Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) celebrations. Typically, and ofrenda is set up on a table, covered with a fine table cloth, and set with offerings to those who have passed.
I love the clash of baseball and Mexican culture depicted in this graphic. It’s a clever tribute to teams like the Boston Braves, Brooklyn Dodgers, Montreal Expos, and several others that have relocated and become new ball clubs.
