  • 19-year-old Athletics prospect murdered

    This happened December 17.

    VILLA GONZALEZ. After being declared a free agent by the Kansas City Royals, Jerinson Tatis was preparing his bags to go, today, and play with Oakland. But a bullet cut short the dreams of his humble family when in the dawn hours of Sunday he fell dead together with Angel Juan Alvarez, 25, in a shooting carried out by three minors in the community of Palmar Arriba.

    During the incident the minor and cousin of the ballplayer, Raymundo Antonio Peña Nuñez, 16, was also wounded. He is currently hospitalized in a private clinic.

    The shooting started in a party that was being held at the community basketball court, during the dawn hours of Sunday, to celebrate a basketball championship. It is believed that the cause was a settling of accounts over a drug deal. Tatis, 18 years old, had played until October with Kansas City when he was declared a free agent. He then returned to be with his family, but had obtained a new contract to leave today for the United States and start playing for the Oakland Athletics.
