Joshua Comenetz, assistant chief of the Population Division’s Population Geography staff and manager of the surnames project, explained the tendency to oregonlive.com.
“There is more surname clustering,” Comenetz said. “Twenty-six surnames cover a quarter of the Hispanic population, and 16 percent of Hispanic people reported one of the top 10 Hispanic names.
Comenetz went on to explain: “The pattern is similar for Asians and blacks. Names are not distributed among racial and ethnic groups the same way the population is distributed,” Comenetz said. “It takes fewer names to cover a large segment of the Hispanic, Asian or black populations, compared to the white population, which has higher surname diversity.”
About 30 percent of today’s players are Latino. In the 2015 census, the overall percentage of Hispanics in the U.S. was about 17 percent.

Before the 1996 season, Florida GM Dave Dombrowski had upped the team¡¯s payroll by 38 percent,3 from 25th in baseball to 16th, reeling in such big-name free agents as Kevin Brown, Al Leiter and Devon White.

Unsurprisingly, all that aggressive free-agent spending gave new Marlins manager Jim Leyland significantly more talent to work with.
If we use Tom Tango¡¯s WARcel projections as a simple way to judge how many wins Florida could have expected to get out of its new acquisitions (as well as the cost of losing the players it jettisoned in the process), the Marlins picked up more than 15 net WAR in talent for 1997 alone through Dombrowski¡¯s wheeling and dealing over the previous two offseasons, another modern-era4 record for an eventual World Series winner.
