Puerto Rico’s spirit is alive on the baseball fields

Those who don’t understand it never will. It’s the same reason we held a parade after the WBC for #LosNuestros, our guys, even though they didn’t win it all. Puerto Ricans take a lot of pride in wearing their flag, letting people know where they are from. Even the people living in the U.S., you are still Puerto Rican at heart. You are still Boricua.
