I have been in Mexico now for 5 days and have been a part of some very interesting situations. In my third game here we were playing Obregon and got into a heated argument with a player who stole a base late in the game up by 6 runs. There is an unwritten rule in baseball where that is frowned upon in many places. Our players did not take well to them doing this and an all out brawl took place on the field. Here are two different links from the footage.
Luckily I don’t believe anyone was seriously hurt, but for a moment it got extremely ugly. Fans were throwing beer and bottles onto the field. I was even surprised we were able to finish the game without any other issues.
Last night while I was sleeping I experienced my first earthquake. Reggie Abercrombie called my room around 3am and asked if I had heard something in the middle of the night. Being dead asleep I had no idea what he was talking about. But as I went to hang up the phone I heard the coffee pot come crashing down to the floor. The room was rumbling as the walls were too.
The culture down here is very pleasant. The players are very soft spoken and their spanish is much easier to understand than VZ or DR players. The food inside the stadium is amazing. After BP I always find myself roaming the grandstands to try something new from the vendors. Fernando Valenzuela is one of our coaches, which is an amazing honor to be in the same dugout as him. I hope to pick his brain about anything with my time down here.
In the Mexican league they play two halves that split up the season. The playoffs also work off a point system dependent on how you finish each half. We are in the hunt to make the playoffs, but just need to win as many as we can down the stretch. Hopefully we can put ourselves in a seat to make a push and play into January.
