Nicaragua - People and places: Vicente Padilla

Vicente Padilla

Vicente Padilla, originally from Chinandega, Nicaragua, has been pitching here in the 'professional' league in Nicaragua.  His team, the Chinandega Tigers, avoided a sweep yesterday in Granada.  Padilla is out of the country (presumably signing his $1.5 million minor league contract with the Boston Red Sox) but the Tigers hope to have him back to even up the best of 5 series.
