  • "There are many opportunities for athletes to make it big in the country, thanks in part to the support from American leagues. There are player showcases, many different training academies, and professional leagues."
  • LOVE FOR THE GAME
  • “We were fortunate men. We got to play baseball for a living, something we would have done even if we hadn’t gotten paid for it.”
  • "Kids wearing local teams’ uniforms shouted in Spanish as they scrambled up the walls, trying to get a view of the action. Some people climbed over the walls or perched on the top of the dugouts to watch the game."
  • Help me get up there!
