Former MLB pitcher, Angel Torres, is in extreme poverty and asks for help in the DR

Although you may think thatthat professional athletes and mainly baseball players from MLB They earn a lot of money, it was not always like that, since it is very common to see players of yesteryear suffer for economic reasons after seeing their careers finished, either due to mismanagement of their resources or other reasons. One of many cases is the former Dominican pitcher Angel Torres.

Torres had a very short MLB career with the Cincinnati Reds, where he only pitched 8.1 innings at the Major League level all in the 1977 season. However, he did have a career in Mexico and also in the Dominican Republic. Now, at 69 years of age, Torres lives in extreme poverty in his country and asks for help.

The so-called “Chivo Azuano” through the Dominican Republic newspaper Récord asks the Union of Peloteros to help him, residing on Ramón Madora street in the municipal district of La Ciénaga, with debts that amount to more than 3,000 dollars, equivalent to around 172,125 Dominican pesos.

Torres had previously had financial and health problems, since in 2008 he had to spend 250 thousand Dominican pesos to undergo a hip operation, which could be paid for thanks to donations.

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and I’m going into my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds, and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
