  Two former major league baseball players helped kick off Hispanic Heritage Month in Syracuse today by sharing their experiences as Latinos in the sport.  Carlos Baerga is a former second baseman from Puerto Rico who signed on at age 16. 

They filtered into the tidy gallery inside the pretty, refurbished 100-year-old former warehouse  on Syracuse's west side Friday night, stopping to look long, hard, and with much appreciation at the new exhibit set up on two walls.
