Mayagüez native J.J. Barea of the Minnesota Timberwolves was apparently ready to play against his old team the Dallas Mavericks. J.J. could not play the previous two encounters due to an injury, but on this last game on Barea scored 21 points and 5 assists in 26:11 minutes of play.  Though Minnesota lost, J.J. won the hearts of many loyal fans in both Minnesota and Dallas.

Interpreters On The Mound?

Being in a Spanish dominant speaking country I was happy to hear that major League Baseball owners approved a change in the MLB rules to be able to allow coaches and managers to use interpreters on the mound when speaking to a non-English speaking player. The recommendation has been sent to the Players Association. Who also must approve to implement this coming season.
