Domingo por la mañana en las canchas de baseball del Estadio Nacional es, literalmente hablando, estar en cualquier país del caribe, menos en Chile.

Y claro, el recinto que está detrás del Velódromo, recibe con unción cada fin de semana a los practicantes de este deporte (principalmente cubanos, venezolanos, dominicanos y uno que otro entusiasta “chilensis”) y el cambio de acento es notorio.

Ya no habrán mas canchas – van a hacer en todo el contorno un “Parque de los Deportes” (?)

Linda cosa, en nombre del deporte van a expulsar de su lugar habitual a otro deporte (minoritario, pero deporte al fin y al cabo), el Baseball se va de Ñuñoa. Una pena.

Sunday morning  at the baseball fields of the Estadio Nacional  it’s, literally, to be in any caribbean country except in Chile.

And, of course, the meadows behind the Velodrome welcomes the trainees and supporters (specially Cubans, Dominicans, Nicaraguans, Venezuelans and an occasional Chilean fan) of this “made-in-USA” sport.

No more baseball fields soon, the Sports government agency announced the demolition of the baseball main field terraces and will build in this place a “Sport Park” (!).

Ironic, in the name of the sport and the people’s wellness this guys will destroy a sport field

The Chilean way.
