[/QUOTE]=Agente Libre]The second baseman for Villa Clara was Jorge Diaz, who defected and played in the minors and independent leagues for about 5 years.
Pedro Jova is now managing one of the teams in the East -- maybe Guantanamo?[/QUOTE]
Thank you Agente Libre for the update on Pedro Jova. I am glad he still coaching (Still involved in baseball) on the Cuban National League.
Jorge Diaz defected!!! That is great news. I know Villa Clara's double plays rate during the 90's was one of the highest in the Cuban National League.
The combination Paret-Diaz saved Villa Clara pitchers from lots of uncomfortable jams situations in the regular season and playoffs.
