First game against USA

Mexico President Vicente Fox

Its been a great adventure and the WBC is a great event. It’s unbelievable and I’m just so proud to be playing for my country. In the back of my mind I feel bad leaving my team behind in Tampa, but they are supporting me and even our new manager Joe Maddon is supporting me while I’m here and playing against all these all stars. It doesn’t get any better than that and I’m enjoying every single minute of it

We played and exhibition game in Tucson against the Diamondbacks and it was great. The whole stadium was for Mexico. It’s right there on the border and that’s what we want. The support out here has been great and we want to take advantage of that. It’s going to be huge and we are excited about it and we are going to do our best.

I have a lot of family coming out for this. My family and friends are all going to be here all with the big sombreros rooting for the team. They got in late last night and got to mingle with the players from the USA and Canada and South Africa and that’s a thrill for them as it is for me. That’s the beauty of baseball. You never know where you are going to be and in what situation..

We play the USA today and it is going to be a great game. Both teams are strong and have strong pitching and the best team is going to win.


Ya pasó lo más difícil, se jugó un gran partido con EU que se decidió por solo 2 batazos, espero que los nervios ya se hayan quedado atrás y te comentó que me pareció verte un poco ansioso -sobre todo al batear-por hacerlo todo bien lo cuál en el beisbol no siempre es posible. Relajense sin perder la concentración para el juego de hoy y una vez que caiga el último out con la victoria en la bolsa, solo entonces empezar a pensar en el juego decisivo de mañana contra los canadienses.
En Mexico hay mucha afición pendiente de su desempeño. Animo esto apenas empieza !!!

Its me again.. the future Mrs.Cantu.. I am sorry about your loss with USA..I was truly rooting for Mexico, and I watched the whole game. But at least now you get to come back to Tampa Bay and practice with the team!! well i love ya like always!! ❤ Megan


Como esta’? Looking forward to seeing you play in Anaheim.

Mi espanol es asi-asi. But mi beisbol knowledge is nice.

Peace, E Maj
