Dodgers are the only other teams that broadcast every game in Spanish but neither has a presence outside the United States “The Marlins are going to become the team of the Americas” said Raul Alarcon

opportunity” Meet Decillis 25 a six-year veteran of minor-league baseball who has never gotten the opportunity Decillis who has played every position except pitcher catcher and center field is hoping to find an opportunity or two with the new Detroit Tigers ownership (the club is expected to be sold within a matter of days) or the two major-league expansion teams “Right now this organization is pretty much in turmoil” said Decillis who is hitting 252 with two home runs and 1 4 RBI “The expansion is something a lot of guys are looking forward to” Decillis acquired an unwanted tag — error-prone — after making 46 errors with the Florida State League Lakeland Tigers in 1988 In 76 games this season Decillis has just five errors Of course he is only playing every other day which brings us to another problem: “You have to come in every day and look at the lineup card and see if you’re in there” Decillis said “It’s not the greatest situation in the world You need to get in every day get those at-bats” On a very youthful and hopeful front Killian High graduate Alex Gonzalez is in his first season in professional baseball hitting 274 playing shortstop with the Class A Myrtle Beach (SC) Hurricanes Gonzalez 19 a 14th-round draft pick by the Blue Jays turned down a scholarship at the University of Miami (where his father is an electrical engineering professor) to play baseball professionally Despite the academic environment he grew up in Gonzalez never considered a career in his father’s field And Dad — Bill Gonzalez — never pushed him “My dad is a baseball fanatic — he’s the one who got me here” Gonzalez said “He used to take time off from work just to go out and practice with me” Bill Gonzalez arranged for his son to toss out the first pitch at a University of Miami baseball game on his birthday when he was about 8 “The field looked so big I didn’t even know where I was” Gonzalez said “It was awesome” Bad feelings are surrounding the Winter Haven Red Sox and the ugly mood has nothing to do with the team’s 24-29 record The unhappy campers include: (a) Miracle Baseball which doesn’t want the Sox in its home city of Fort Myers — where the Winter Haven team intends to move next season and (b) Winter Haven stadium employees who are furious because they were told a couple weeks ago that if the team moves to Fort Myers they will be out of jobs “If I sound uncooperative I mean to be” one employee said “I’m miffed” The Red Sox want to move t£te Single-A Winter Haven team into the downtown Fort MyeJs stadium that is already under construction for major-league spring training The National Association has not granted approval for the move ruling that the minor-league Red Sox are moving into Miracle terii-tory If the two clubs cannot work out an agreement — and they are not even talking anymore — the Red Sox will have to look elsewhere And the Sox are not interested in a return to Winter Haven the home for majo’r-league spring training for more than 25 years Nor are they interested in retaining current employees with one exception: General Manager Bill MacKay who has been renting an office in Fort Myers c L h p A r A A Tfc ft ft A ti
