Baseball News; Marlins Closer Played Under Assumed Name
AP reports that MLB Florida Marlins closer Leo Nunez has been playing under an assumed name and he returned his native Dominican Republic yesterday. This, of course, is likely to raise a myriad of immigratiuon problems and possibly even place his future in Major League Baseball in jeopardy. I am not aware of other Dominican (or other) players playing under assumed names, although baseball great Miguel Tejada lied about his age (and relative youth) when he was seeking to break into MLB.
