With a very good friend - US kids playing baseball vs Dominican.
At the end, there really is no argument. In the DR today, not 20,30,40 years ago. But today. Group of 11-14 year old kids. Half are BAREFOOT. 50 year old gloves. Adult chest protector on a 12 year old kid. Swinging a sledge hammer and hitting a tractor tire. On a field that is more rock than dirt.

The work these kids do, the heart these kids have, the "make it because I have no choice" attitude. These kids have absolutely nothing to fall back on. It's poverty, or try to get signed at 16. Those are their only two choices. An American kid has his iPad, his iPhone, his PS4. His 4kTV. Cable. The internet. School. Etc etc etc.
Lugo was decent

3 runs over almost 6 innings against essentially nothing but all-stars is pretty sweet. I'll take it.
