The Philadelphia Phillies won the fifth game of the World Series capturing the title 4-1. It has been a while since I watched a complete World Series, but I watched to pull for another of Panama’s athletes to be successful. Carlos Ruiz, the catcher for Philadelphia, played a key role having several key hits and key plays at the plate.
Like Irving Saladino (2008 Olympic gold medalist) and Margarita Henriguez (2008 Latin American Idol winner), Carlos Ruiz (a Chiricano) has captured the spotlight. It has been quite a year for Panamanians. My congratulations go out to Carlos Ruiz and the Philadelphia Phillies – 2008 World Series Champions.
