Puerto Rico Commonwealth Profile
The Cincinnati Reds have had three Puerto Rican players over the years, including Nino Escalera, Rafael Santo Domingo, and Héctor Mercado.
Former President William Howard Taft, a Cincinnatian who went on to serve as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in the 1920s, delivered a major legal decision in 1922 that helped keep Puerto Rico separate. Taft said the congressional act that conferred citizenship on the islanders did not contemplate that they would be incorporated into the Union. He ruled the U.S. possession had never been designated for statehood. Taft gave the island a unique status that has been described as a commonwealth, or as it is said in Spanish, “Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico.”
More recently, Ohio House Democrats were a primary source of support in 2012 for a Congressional bill which would have urged the U.S. Congress to confer statehood status on Puerto Rico. This measure was also backed by local Ohio State Representative Alicia Reece.
