Cuban Man, Supposedly A Baseball Player, Sleeping Outside Dodger Stadium Hoping To Get A Roster Spot
Bardown– In the hopes to gain a tryout with the Los Angeles Dodgers of the MLB, a Cuban baseball player by the name of Loah Linares has been camped out in front of Dodger Stadium for over two weeks. With major league aspirations, Linares has set a goal to make the Dodgers roster, and he doesn’t seem to be budging from the spot he is set up in until the they give him a tryout. ABC 7 in Los Angeles interviewed Linares himself and attempted to get further details from the Dodgers camp: “If I didn’t know how great a baseball player I know I am, I wouldn’t be here trying to show off my skills to somebody,” Linares said. He’s determined to stay outside Dodger Stadium for as long as it takes, and has been working out as much as he can on the streets, hoping the owners will give him a shot on the field…. The Los Angeles Dodgers had no response when contacted by Eyewitness News, but security says Linares has unsuccessfully tried to get into the stadium. Watch the video below to learn more about Linares’ story:
Listen im not gonna play manager of a club house or pretend like I can see talent in this guy even though i haven’t seen a single video of him swinging the bat but Cubans have value in baseball. Hey Loah, come down to Miami where theres a Cuban on every block. You, Jose, and Adeiny can chit chat about all mariquitas and cafe con leche all day and play ball. Thats a cubans dream. If he is in fact a real cuban, he can’t be that bad at baseball. He clearly thinks he can put up some numbers if he’s crazy enough to camp outside for two weeks. Even if he sucks, the confidence is there and i like it. Some one get Loria on the phone to fly this guy out here. Give him minimum salary and just bring in all the cubans Miami has to offer and pretend like we aren’t second to last in the division with star players with massive contracts still on IR.
