You must read this story by Jesse Katz in L.A. Magazine [1]about Yasiel Puig’s journey from Cuban poverty to major league prosperity.

Yasiel Puig is one of the most, if not the most controversial player in baseball, but this story puts into light the struggles he went through to play baseball in the US. While he should show up to the stadium on time, this story puts into light why Puig’s critic should reconsider their comments about him needing to “grow up.”

Puig has already had to live through more than most of his detractors could ever imagine and has done more, and risked more, to play baseball in this country than they could ever dream.
