Panama 4, Cuba 2 (bottom of the 6th)

With no disrepect intended to the Big East Tournament or today’s Real Madrid/Arsenal fixture, it’s kinda nice to imagine a ton of people around the world hanging on every pitch of Bruce Chen’s.

Or a half ton.

Congrats to Ruben Rivera on his massive 3 run HR to left-center field in the 6th. CSTB Inc. has a special prize for him (above). Yes, that is Derek Jeter signature, and I’ve left it in my company locker. Feel free to pick it up anytime, sir!

Not to get all political on you or anything, but I’m worried about Gary Thorne defecting.
