Yasiel Puig Migration to US

As most of you who are reading this know that Yasiel Puig left the island of Cuba and was smuggled into the United States with the help of people with special interests in Miami and Cancun.  Even with outside help, by anyone’s imagination, it must have been a trip and risk that few would be willing to take.  People make the trip for a variety of reasons – but most do so for economic or political motives.  And, apparently there is a lot of crazy stories surrounding Yasiel Puig’s migration to the United States.   If you are at all interested in what Yasiel Puig faced in his travels to the United States, you might wish to read the article attached to the following link.  http://espn.go.com/espn/feature/story/_/id/10781144/no-one-walks-island-los-angeles-dodgers-yasiel-puig-journey-cuba

Short Bio of Yasiel Puig

He grew up in Cienfuegos, and played for the Cuban national team in the 2008 World Junior Championship, where they won a bronze medal. He then played in the Cuban National Series, but a failed attempt at defecting to the United States had him out for a season as punishment. He then tried several more times to defect to Mexico (so as to get to the U.S. by land), finally succeeding in 2012. Puig signed with the Dodgers in 2012.

About the Painting

The painting by sports artist John Robertson is approximately  4 feet by 6 feet, acrylic on unstretched canvas

Baseball painting LA Dodgers Catcher A. J. Ellis

AJ Ellis LA Dodgers

Painting of LA Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis.  A.J. Ellis has had a good season catching and a couple of his big highlights is catching for two La Dodgers no hitters thrown – one thrown by Josh Beckett and the other by Clayton Kershaw.  These two events has added a great deal of confidence to a baseball player who wants to and is performing at a high level.  I am not sure if he still does this but when he was in the minor leagues he would watch every game on replay.  What he was doing was looking at the sequences, go through the at-bats, and consider what other things he could have done – maybe differently.  It was a way of re-thinking the games and that may give him insights for future games.  And this makes any pitcher respect his catcher, knowing that his catcher has done all the homework possible to make the right pitching calls.

A J Ellis baseball painting is 48 inches by 48 inches, ink and acrylic on old baseball newsprint attached to canvas.
