    My ex-husband’ father played for Mariano in the 50s.  He was a catcher, Pedro Cabrera.  My daughter has decided she wants to try to locate a jersey or some other memorabelia from that time for her dad.  Is there a way to contact Mr. Chavez to see if there is any possibility of talking to him about this?  Thank You!!!
