Venezuela is the cradle of baseball players, a large number of renowned and talented Venezuelan players have passed through the best baseball in the world who have exalted the name of the country in each team where they have played, many are still remembered and missed by the fans for their way of playing and the achievements that the team they were defending achieved at that time.
Since that April 23, 1939, when Alejandro “Paton” Carrasquel made his Major League debut with the Washington Senators, until today, 435 players born in the yard have debuted in the best baseball in the world.
Many have left indelible memories such as: Magglio Ordoñez’s home run with the Detroit Tigers in 2006 against the Oakland Athletics that unleashed total madness at Comerica Park as it served to put his team in the world series ; there’s also Endy Chavez’s save with the New York Mets against St. Louis stealing a home run from Scott Rolen.
Fredy Garcia also gave a pitching recital by shutting out the Houston Astros by seven ining in the final game of that series in 2005.
These and other anecdotes starring our players are becoming more and more frequent for fans, and as this year cannot be different, several Venezuelans will say present at the World Series to continue making history in MLB (Major League Baseball).
Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves are teams that have several Venezuelan players and coaches on their rosters who play an important role in each organization, their help will be vital to stay with the championship.
Star players such as José Altuve, multiple winner of batting championships, seeks to add another championship title to his showcase, commands a team that plays its third world series in 5 years, together with Carlos Correa they are the duo that will seek to prevail in this final, in addition , to have Luis García pitcher in full swing who did a very good job in the series against the Boston Red Sox.
For its part, Atlanta will not have one of its greatest figures, the patrolman Ronald Acuña Jr who suffered a severe injury that marginalized him from the playing fields until next year, but we will be able to enjoy Ehire Adrianza, William Contreras considered the future owner of the position in the organization and Orlando Arcia defender from shortstop.
The Venezuelan presence continues to be present in the decisive stages.
