    What ever happened to.......... ???

    Oh my gosh! I can't remember his name! He was a bench player for the Reds whose wife had cancer.

    In 2005 he was the best pinch hitter in the league, maybe both leagues.

    Heeeelp! Both with the name and where he is now. (this is embarassing)

    It looks like he split time last season between Louisville (Reds Affiliate) and Norfolk. http://www.thebaseballcube.com/playe...cob-Cruz.shtml

    This season, I do not know.

    Trent had this on his blog...

    former Red report

    SARASOTA, Fla. -- One of the beauties of this time of year is old faces in new places.

    And while people get on me about how lucky I am to have to spend six weeks in Florida for work, I envy the Hanwha Eagles beatwriters. The Eagles train in Hawaii, which is where Marc found this tidbit on long-time blog favorite Jacob Cruz.

    The Eagles need not look far for first-hand background on the league. One of their two foreign players on the team is outfielder Jacob Cruz, who spent the previous 13 seasons playing in the U.S. majors or its minor league affiliates. He played for the West Oahu CaneFires in 1995.

    Cruz, who is in his first season with the Eagles, said Hawai'i Winter Baseball was a good experience because Americans got to interact with players from Asian leagues.

    "I got to meet a lot of different people," he said. "I have a lot of fond memories of Hawai'i."

    I also found this....he played in the Mexican Pacific League....I believe as a part of Mets....

    1B Jacob Cruz -- Cruz last played on Dec. 21 and finished the regular season with a .258 batting average, two home runs and nine RBIs in 28 games. He didn't play in the postseason for Tomateros de Culiacan.

    Here is the link to it...
