CLEVELAND (AP) Not even a cold, rainy day could hinder Carlos Santana's joyful smile.
The Indians first baseman was sworn in as a U.S. citizen on Friday, taking the oath with 83 others while his two young daughters fought for his attention. Afterward, Santana beamed with pride.
"Thanks, Cleveland, for giving me an opportunity," said Santana, who was born in the Dominican Republic. "This is my residence, my city, and I'm proud and happy for that. Thank God I'm an American."
