Ivan Rodriguez Welcomes Cuba in the Caribbean Baseball Series

Screw Carlton Fisk…Ivan Rodriguez is the “flannel Pudge”!

The legendary catcher Ivan Rodriguez today welcomed Cuba to the Caribbean Baseball Series and said the team of his country, the Indios de Mayagüez, is able to give fight.

In an aside with Cuban media in Lidotel hotel in this city, Pudge (as is known worldwide the “boricua” catcher) said that Cuba deserves to be at events like this, and others that may arise from now on. It is a pleasure that is participating, he added.

Rodriguez commented that Cuban teams are always welcome to these tournaments.

Next year the series will be in Puerto Rico and I hope Cuba will be present because, I repeat, it should be in these tournaments, hopefully this is the beginning for final reinstatement.

The former player in Major League Baseball is located in Margarita Island as general manager of the Indios de Mayagüez, champion of the professional league of the island. The team is fine, fairly complete, added a few things more like several players and pitchers to be ready to compete, the important thing is to compete, he said.

During his career in the majors, the flannel Pudge defended several franchises, including the Florida Marlins, which won the 2003 World Series.
