Nine of the Raleigh Braves just returned from a great trip to MSBL Caribbean Winter Baseball Championships held in Puerto Rico. The nine Braves included Bobby Lovett, Don Montgomery, Quincy Marshall, Javi Barragan, Scott Sigafoose, Hector Diaz, Clint Reese, Robert Clark and David Halley.
The Braves joined forces with a team out of Texas that was run by Chris Hux, a former CNCMSBL player. The Texas team, called the Texas Red Birds, included many good players and a few former MLBers including Denis ‘Oil Can’ Boyd, and Mike Smith (Orioles). “We had a good time and we all played well,” stated Halley. The Red Birds went 3-1 and in the round robin, but lost in the semis 4-5 to a team from Puerto Rico. “I was very proud of the way the guys played,” Halley concluded.
