Happy Birthday

°Feliz cumpleaŮos amigo! to Dayan Viciedo, who turns 20 years old today.  Can you imagine how the Cuban’s life has changed over the past year?

Congratulations

As well to Jose Contreras, who today becomes an American citizen in Miami.  Contreras, 37, defected from Cuba in October 2002 and today will become an American.

This winter a visitor planning a trip to Cuba contacted us to purchase a box of White Sox hats for kids on the island.  The tourist visted the home province of Contreras and Alexei Ramirez, passing out hats in the neighborhood and hopefully creating life-long Sox fans (and maybe future players).

You can read about the visit in the first edition of the game program and see photos from the trip, including Estadio Capitan San Luis, the ballpark where Alexei and Jose both players growing up.

Sweet Home

I’m back in town until Friday morning to catch up on things in the office and re-introduce myself to my kids.
