Who is "Alexi?" Is he related to Alexei Ramirez of the White Sox?

It was great to see Mr. Ramirez throw out the first pitch to Alexei prior to the game last night. Alexei has been playing very well lately. Hope Alexei's mom & dad enjoy their visit to Chicago.

According to the official site (http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20120704&content_id=34450810&notebook_id=34463790&vkey=notebook_cws&c_id=cws), Alexei's parents just arrived in the states from Cuba and will be living with Alexei, so sounds like more than just a visit. :smile:

I noticed they are being very careful not to describe the circumstances of how they got here. Probably for a very good reason - and I'm very happy for Alexei! :bandance:

I got a smile and nod out of Mr Ramirez as he came down the aisle for some reason next to my seats. He looks like a man who has done a lot of hard work with his hands, very weathered and gnarled.

When Alexei got an RBI single that showed the reaction of his parents in the stands. His mom was excited. Dad was stoically munching on some food. Stoney quipped ... and mister Ramirez is very hungry.:D:

It seems like Bacon's season was sparked when his parents came to see him play, and now TCM has experienced the same uplift.

Maybe we should get the parents in the stands for Alexei in April/May, and September/October when it is cooler weather......:scratch:

5-Star cuisine compared to Dominican Castro Burgers..., either that or a case of.. "Alexei get a hit?...,my boy always comes up clutch".. munch.. munch.

Thanks for the link. What a terrific story about a son being reunited with his parents. :D:

That's great, Fielder. It is so wonderful to be at the ballpark and take in all of the sights and sounds, especially when the Sox are winning. And I'm glad to see your L-W attendance record is improving. Go Sox!

I almost died laughing when he said that. His one-liner about Beckham's dad ("That family has great hair") was pretty hilarious also.

If I was the President, i would be taking credit for this. Welcome to Chicago, and keep Alexi happy with that home cooking.

Could this process be the reason Alexei had such a horrendous start to the season?
