This from the local paper here in Raleigh. Pretty good piece on the Mudcats Felix Perez that I thought you guys might be interested in.

I just realized this was in another thread. My apologies.

It's worth it's own thread anyway. Great human interest piece, with more to come it seems. Crazy story, getting stranded in the ocean, ending up in Mexico, then an island, then US. No wonder he's 25! It took forever to chase his dream!

I hope he and Chapman can help each other, if they haven't already.

This brings up an adjacent point made by Ozzie Guillen, if Japanese players have translators, shouldn't Latin players?

I wrote a research paper a few months ago about Cuban struggles in baseball, I wish I had this article back then to add to it. Great story.
