Roberto Petagine

Petagine  That’s a photo of Roberto Petagine. He’s sort of a footnote in the history of Venezuelan players from the famous Houston Astros academy. He’s the first out of that academy to make it to the Major Leagues, but his career has not gone as planned. He’s really cool and introspective about it all. He’s played for six teams and spent six seasons in Japan. Here is a feature I wrote about him for the Mariners site. Here is a link to’s Spanish site.
