45 years in prison for sexual abuse

Enjoy a new installment of "En la Pelota" by Juan Vené

“Working is less boring than having fun.” Charles Baudelaire.

Mel Hall, Yankees outfielder between 1989 and 1992, is serving a 45-year sentence in a Texas prison for having had sexual relations during those years in New York with a girl, then 15 years old. Mel also played with the Cubs, Indians, Giants and in Japan...

The Astros' Dominican pitcher, Ronel Blanco, 30 years old and with three seasons of experience in the Major Leagues, believed he could deceive the umpires, who are now very dedicated to examining pitchers. The first base umpire, playing with the Athletics, Erich Bacchus, said that he discovered on his glove “something as sticky as he had never found in these functions.” They suspended Blanco for 10 games and fined him an undisclosed sum. Ronel has a season record of 6-1, 3.58. And this year, 4-0, 2.09. What you should take care of are those numbers, boy...

“Ignorance is not a sin, but how heavy it is!”… Fray Romualdo.

32-year-old Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler of the Giants is on the injured list. But he hit in practice, preparing to return to the game. The ball from a foul that bounced off the roof of the protective mesh, came back down violently and hit Soler in the head, who is now being treated by trainers and doctors, to see when he can return to the lineup...

In the Central Division of the National League, the Brewers (26-17) and the Cubs (25-19) are in an interesting fight. That's why at Wrigley Field they look for pitching for the bullpen. And they got reliever Tyson Miller from the Mariners in exchange for infielder Jake Slaughter. Miller, 28, had nine appearances this year, with a 3.09 ERA, and 12 strikeouts in 11.2 innings... They're going well, guys, they're going well!...

The billionaire owner of the Mets, Steve Cohen, is very concerned, because when he bought the team, on September 14, 2020, he thought it was not very difficult to reach the World Series. After less than four years at the helm of the Citi Field business, he has not waned his enthusiasm or love for the currency, but he has confessed to feeling that “this is more uphill than I thought”… It will dawn and we will see!…

“Money is a seed. Don't eat all your seeds. Plant some and you will achieve financial greatness in your life”… Varela Cavazos.

Thanks to the life that has given me so much, even a reader like you.
