Two Fun Facts on Alberto Callaspo

  1. In 1983 Alberto Callaspo was born in Maracay, Venezuela. To date, 214 Venezuelan-born players have appeared in the Major Leagues, second only to the Dominican Republic's 457. A number of Big League players have hailed from Maracay, including Miguel Cabrera, Carlos Guillen and Bobby Abreu. For a city of about 1.3 million people, its been a good decade for Maracayan ballers.
  2. Callaspo has been hit by a pitch once in his limited Big League duty... Watch your back Byung-Hyun Kim. We all remember April 3, 2007, and what happened in the 11th inning.

Sorry for the short post... life intervened....
