Fernando Valenzuela Becomes A U.S. Citizen

As a niña growing up in Mexico in the early 80’s, I would hear about this great Mexico pitcher playing in the United States. I can remember my dad catching the Dodger Games via antenna parabolica and watching Fernando Valenzuela pitch. Valenzuela when on to accomplish Rookie of the Year, a Cy Young award, World Series champion and a no-hitter. Es considerado one of the greatest Mexican pitchers of all time. But now he has accomplished something that may be even greater.

Valenzuela raised his right hand and took the oath of allegiance to the U.S. at the immigration naturalization ceremony in downtown Los Angeles. As a local celebrity, he could have opted for a private ceremony but he decided to join the 8,000 others at the ceremony. It’s great to see that Fernando has remained humble and now is a U.S. Citizen.
