Just thought I would pass this along, thought it was interesting. I was watching part of a game of the Little League World Series today, and the commentators were talking about how they were surprised that a majority of the Little League team from Panama picked Carlos Lee as their favorite player. Some picked Panama native Mariano Rivera, but El Caballo was the overall favorite. The commentators mentioned how Lee is very active in the communitity, especially for his involvement in little league and baseball in Panama. Just thought that was kind of cool.

Yeah, I heard that also. They also said if you mention the name Carlos Lee to those kids, they out of nowhere get a huge smile on their faces. Good to know how good of a guy a lot of the players are not just wealthy SOB's.

Rod Carew is probably the only player from Panama to make the baseball Hall of Fame and be eligible for the Jewish Hall of Fame also.

*****!! I've always wondered if pitchers get pissed at him when he doesnt move if a home run is hit way over his head, like he tends to do sometimes.

Rod Carew is NOT Jewish. I met his daughter, and I asked her this. She said that Adam Sandler was wrong in his song. His wife is jewish, and tey raised their family that way, but he has not converted, and IS NOT JEWISH.

Why bother? If it's gone, it's gone.
