Son of baseball player Vicente Anglada escapes to US

HAVANA TIMES, March 9 – Dyan Rey Anglada, son of former Industriales player Rey Vicente Anglada, came to the U.S. just over a month ago to try his luck in the Major Legues, reported CaféFuerte.

The 23-year-old athlete, with a career still in its infancy, traveled from Havana to Mexico from where he sought and received refuge from United States border authorities.

“I played in the Development League with the team of the 10 de Octubre municipality to stay in condition, but I tried not to create commitments because I already had in mind the idea of ‘disappearing’ from there,” he told CaféFuerte.

His father, the great Rey Vicente Anglada, was suspended at the height of his career under unfounded accusations of selling games in 1982, for which he served two years and eight months in prison. He currently manages the Bocas del Toro team in Panama baseball.
