    I can’t help saying something about Garlobo who lives in jovellanos, a little town of Matanzas province,my own home town, and the fact is Garlobo had been rejected many time to form the national baseball team,WHy?B/c the nonsense and sometimes corruptive methods in the cuban national team selection process,garlobo turns now 28, and he is better slugger than Gurriel
    is,just see his average before the game versus dominicana,more than 400,
    and yesterday he hitted the ball 3 out 4 times at plate.Garlobo is for sure a
    heroe among the heroes in this world baseball clasis,which is by the way one
    of the best tournament in the recent baseball history.
