As the game of baseball has grown more and more influenced by Latin America, Pedro became a voice for a movement. Pedro frequently played the role of translator, interviewer, and journalist all-in-one and, like Cronkite student Marco Peralta says, he advised young journalists to "use [their] gift of being bilingual".
The National Association of Hispanic Journalists is dedicated to the recognition and professional advancement of Hispanics in the news industry. NAHJ has over 4,000 members across the country. Their goal is to provide, encourage and support the study and practices of journalism and communications by Hispanics. The Pedro Gomez Foundation is proud to partner with NAHJ to continue that focus through a paid 10-week summer internship to undergraduate students beginning in the summer of 2023.
