Abe Alvarez has returned to school at Long Beach State College (must be like Grant College) to work on getting his degree. In Business, I would imagine. He is also planning to play pro ball in Italy for a year. Dude, say hello to Mike Lockwood!
In a related story, Spain has a national baseball team. I can't believe it.
Also, check out the blog "Baseball Over Here: One man's point of view of baseball from the international angle, and exploring how the game is expanding across the globe." Yeah.
