A three-part in-depth interview detailing my reactions to the recent signing of top Cuban League prospect Aroldis Chapman by the Cincinnati Reds has now been posted in its entirety on the highly entertaining Cincinnati.com Cincinnati Reds Fan Forum blog site. For those wishing to visit the entire interview, the links for the three segments are as follows:
Part 1: Baseball on the Island
Part 2: Cuba’s Rich Baseball Culture
Part 3: Aroldis Chapman, the Pitcher
The entire interview is also now available on our Cuban League website found at www.BaseballdeCuba.com. The interview will hopefully tell you something about Chapman as an MLB prospect, but also displays a good deal about Cuba’s baseball scene, and even reveals something about the author’s own two-decade involvement with the island’s extensive baseball culture.
