¡Puerto Rico SABE A BEISBOL!


The Department Commander for the American Legion in Puerto Rico Carmen Rosario has as one of her goals to bring back Legion Baseball to the island. After a 13-year break of this program in the island we have reached a MOU (memorandum of understanding) with the Municipality of Caguas after a visit with Hector Falero which as well opened up an opportunity to as well do a MOU with Mr. Arturo Ondina, Vice President of Operations of "Los Criollos de Caguas".
