For whatever reason I was recollecting about being a Clippers fan to a limited degree since I lived for a brief period in El Cajon and then in military (Navy) housing in the Serra Mesa neighborhood of San Diego from about 1985-87 right when my favorite baseball player instantly became Tony Gwynn. So much so that I patterned how I approached baseball after his style, ways and pointers given from time to time.
Well before his Hall of Fame MLB career, he was nice at hoops, yes basketball While at San Diego State University.
Peep the video. To top if off the San Diego Clippers drafted him. Surely not the most temping lure away from his love and pursuit and attainment of greatest in baseball…Plus he was A NATURALLY-GIFTED BASEBALLER (NGB)…see Trout, Grif, Puckett, Yaz, Ichiro…I will stop but so many NGBs like Valenzuela haha.

Just quickly connecting a few nuggets and gems I come across of importance in an Afrispora way (Africa + Diaspora= Afrispora)
This excerpt is a quote from an interview of which does a range of thinga primarily related to how David Ortiz is a Father figure to Hanley Ramirez and other Dominician and Latin American players.
Oh, you don’t wanna know. Hahaha. Ohhh, no. But what I’m saying is, it’s how we are. We want to make every one of us happy. We know what struggle means. We know how important it is to have your second family. When I see people struggle, it bothers me. I don’t care if you play for any other ball club. I remember, I saw this thing that Jackie Robinson said about how the importance of life is not what you do for yourself, it’s when you make a difference in somebody else’s life. That’s so true.”
