Bobby Avila[edit]

Support Detailed biography of an individual who was notable both on and off the playing field. We have never had a featured article of a Mexican player. - Mischa (talk) 14:35, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

Support Probably could use another image for the bottom third of the article. Alexsautographs (talk) 18:23, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

Support Comprehensive and well-researched. Three images, none of which are baseball cards, is actually quite good. Philippe (talk) 13:27, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

Support It's a very detailed and good article. My only concern is the start, where he is described as "the greatest second baseman to emerge from Mexico". While that's intended as a compliment, some people might see it as a sort of insult - the comment isolates Bobby as a Mexican rather than as a world-class ballplayer. I'd prefer if you led the article with a sentence that talks about his BA championship, his defensive ability, his All-Star appearances (which are already in the first sentence at the end) and his presidency of the Mexican League. All of those things show his outstanding accomplishments in the world, not just among emerging Mexicans. Randy (talk)

Thanks for the feedback. I adjusted it accordingly. - Mischa (talk) 17:35, 24 April 2020 (UTC)
