Who's A Latino Baseball Legend

See my post below and get a load of this:

When Major League Baseball unveiled its ballot for the Latino Legends team Tuesday, the 60 nominees excluded two of the greatest Hispanic players ever: Ted Williams and Reggie Jackson.

Williams and Jackson's names seem out of place in a group with Roberto Clemente, Orlando Cepeda, Pedro Martínez and Rod Carew, but Williams's mother was Mexican and Jackson's father was half Puerto Rican and played in the Negro leagues...

Had baseball made an egregious historical error by omitting Williams and his career .344 batting average or Jackson and his 563 home runs?
