ROBERTO ALOMAR AND MLB PARTNER UP TO BRING PR12 TO PUERTO RICO
Puerto Rico 12 (PR12) will take place July 31 to August 5 at Hiram Bithorn. The objective of PR12 is to select the best 120 Puerto Rican born amateur players (ages 16-19) that have college eligibility. These selected players will participate in a showcase baseball tournament in front of Major League Scouts and College Recruiters.
Roberto Alomar Velázquez, born February 5, 1968 is a former Major League Baseball player (1988–2004), regarded highly as a second baseman. During his career, the 12-time All-Star won more Gold Gloves (10) than any other second baseman in baseball history, and also won the third-most Silver Slugger Awards (4) for a second baseman. On January 5, 2011, Alomar was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, in his second year of eligibility. He became the first Hall of Fame member to be inducted as a Toronto Blue Jays player.
