Bully got to see him play in Boston last weekend. He waved the Aruban flag during the game, and wore all of his Red Sox swag. Such a great moment.
Going to a red sox game the day before we fly to Aruba...
There is another young guy from Aruba name Chadwick Tromp 21 yrs old. He plays on our minor league the Daytona Tortugas as a catcher..
He plans on becoming the 6th player from his native home Aruba to go major league.. fingers cross..
Not sure if I posted this before. At the end of January we ran into Xander at the West Deck and he was gracious enough to pose for a picture with DW and our grandson. Also saw him at the airport in Boston waiting to board the same flight as ours.
He's having an amazing season. One opposing player said he was the best hitter in baseball right now.
Xander is a flat out incredible this year! I play fantasy baseball for cash and one of the reasons my all of my squads stink is probably because Xander is not on any of them...I did not expect him to break out like he has but I am happy as a Sox fan.
