Renteria! Renteria!

The 2010 baseball season is over and the San Francisco Giants are the World Series champions! First championship for the team in San Francisco and first for the franchise since 1954! I would have loved for the series to go all seven games, but that is just the die-hard baseball fan in me who feels like spring training 2011 is years away. Overall, the series was great and showed fans that starting pitching will always be what wins ball games. And at the end of the day, I'm happy with any team that is not the New York Yankees. :)

Of special note, congratulations to Edgar Renteria, one of few Colombian players in Major Leagues, on the three run winning home run for the Giants! Major League Baseball named him the 2010 World Series MVP!!! Exciting for him and exciting for Colombia!


And now...only 120 days until players report for Spring Training 2011.

I am very happy for Edgar and all of Columbia's baseball players and fans. My son played two winters of ball for Cartagena in the Renterai League and has very fond memories of the beautiful Columbia people.
