Jose Lima is the latest Major Leaguer to sign with a Mexican League team, joining the Saltillo Sarape Makers for their upcoming season.
General Manager Jaime Biancarte stated that although Lima is “eccentric” that he comes with the spirit to support the team and a player like him brings people out to the park and his arrival to the club is positive because he brings much charisma.
In other Mexican League news, former LA Dodger Ismael Valdes joins former Major Leaguer Antonio Osuna with the Quintana Roo Tigres. It seems the Tigres, who floundered last year and have never been able to make a go of it in Cancun are really trying to send a message that they are for real. The expected turnout for the Tigres’ March 22nd home opener is 8,000.
Children get in free to all the games (best idea ever) and for those who were wondering what the price of admission is, it works out to $12 for the best seats, $8 for preferential and $2 general admission.
