2017 is shaping up to be a wonderful year for former #Yankees player #AlexRodriguez! Not only does he get to call #JenniferLopez bae right now, but he has officially made history as the first Hispanic person to join the cast of savvy businessmen and businesswomen on #SharkTank! He is #Dominican-American and will be joining the show next season.
“The fact that (Hispanics) contribute over a trillion dollars annually to the economy is just a phenomenal feat.” #ARod tells CNBC. “I think in D.C. and other business communities, we should be having really smart conversations on how to double that number.”
By the way, if you’re thinking that Mark Cuban is Hispanic, then think again! He is actually of Jewish descent as his grandfather changed their family name from “Chabenisky” to “Cuban” after emigrating from Russia.
