CALVIN MADURO SPONSORING CELEBRITY SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT IN HIS NATIVE ARUBA

Bears Pitcher Also Signs With Venezuelan Winter Team

 

 

 

October 15, 2003: Calvin Maduro, pitcher for the 2003 Bears, is co-sponsoring a celebrity charity softball tournament on November 8 in Aruba. Calvin's co-sponsors are Sidney Ponson, San Francisco Giants pitcher, and Eugene Kingsale, Detroit Tigers center fielder. All three players are Aruba natives. The tournament, which benefits Cas pa Huventud, a local youth shelter, is preceded by a concert a week before, and will feature appearances by Hall-of-Famers Eddie Murray and Brooks Robinson, as well as players from the Yankees, Tigers, Orioles, and Cubs.

Calvin is currently in Cuba, pitching for The Netherlands' national team in the 35th Baseball World Cup competition. (Aruba is an "independent entity" within the Kingdom of The Netherlands.) In fact, today he led his team to a 12-0 victory over France! After the World Cup and making his Aruba appearance, Calvin will be playing winter ball in Venezuela for Las Aguilas del Zulia (news), for whom he also played in 1998-99. (Check out their roster for that season and see if you can find any other Atlantic Leaguers!) Garry Maddox, Jr., late of the Camden Riversharks, will be his teammate there this year.
