Former Indian visits Shankees

Former Cleveland Indian pitcher and current MLB scout, Charlie Vargas, took time away from his Buenos Aires vacation to visit a trio of Shankees at the beautiful Bosques de Palermo. New Shankee on the block, Iñaki Picco, lefty ace, Julio Bracho, and his battery mate and older brother Cesar Bracho, took part in a three hour pitching clinic by the former big leaguer. Also on hand were team President Paul Perry and team Manager, Jay Bartelli, who look to assemble a winning team based on talent and chemistry before the season starts in mid-February. “Our young players gained great insight today. I´m so glad they were given this opportunity,” stated Perry after the workout. Julio Bracho, who debuted last season with 8 Ks in nine full inning against the Japanese Association team from La Plata, looked ecstatic as the former Indian showed him the ropes. Older brother Cesar commented, “It was a great workout. I really needed that.” Hopefully Vargas is the first of many former big-leaguers that make their way down to BA and share their passion for baseball with the Shankees.
