THERE’S BASEBALL IN PARADISE WE SAW IT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
Jill and I had a “very rough” business trip right after Thanksgiving this year. We traveled to the Southeastern Caribbean for an International Sports Group coaches’ clinic and spent nearly a week in Oranjestad, Aruba. As one might imagine, it was a really tough assignment. Just deciding what to wear was a challenge. The high every day was 84 and the low was 81. The breeze was 15 mph. It rained every day, albeit for 15 minutes. The sun was on full display every single day. The beaches and the water were stunningly beautiful. Like I said, tough assignment. Paradise for a week. The people of Aruba were warm, charming, and very concerned about our experience and whether we enjoyed ourselves enough to return. They needn’t have worried. Jill and I are veterans of the islands of the Caribbean and have visited well over 75 percent of the major islands, such as Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, the Bahamas,
the U.S. Virgin Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Antigua, Barbuda, Grenada, and the Dominican Republic. We consider Aruba the very best of the best.
The Arubans LOVE their baseball — especially Xander Bogarts and Gene Kingsale, two native sons who have played major league baseball. Needless to say, young boys in Aruba are well-versed in the moves and behavior of MLB baseball players, especially players from Latin America. The clinic was an amazing experience. Special thanks to our ISG leader, Pete Caliendo from Chicago, and to Sherwin Howel and Jeanine Roga from Baseball Aruba.
