Mex Pac Notes:

Jorge Luis Valle an average player for most of his 11 season I this league is now a real unknown soldier, since he is batting an amazing .347 but not having the minimum AB to be in the top ten hitters.
He realizes that being changed to Saltillo in the summer help regained his confidence .

Jonny Gomes, the Tampa Bay wonder , finally made his long waited debut with Mexicali, where he excelled last winter all the way through the Caribbean Series and put him in the window case to earned a chance to make it to the big leagues in 2005, and made it.

Vinny Castilla will be visiting Mexico City to throw inauguration first pitch in Olmeca Little League.

Mexican Sports Offcials blamed the MexPac with the poor result of Mexcian Team in the Pre Olympic Qualification Series held last week in Phoenix, AZ and now they in the middle of verbal confrontation with them.
They claimed that, Mex Pac was not too cooperative with Baseball Federation to allow best players to participate.

In another issues, for the upcoming Caribbean Series which, Venezuela will host next February, Mexico`s participation is in jeopardy, since this country regulations states that, beer & cigarettes ads in uniforms are forbidden, so if no agreement is reached from advertising and teams, there wont`be Mexican team on that tournament.
