Baseball in Medellín is Now Played with a Venezuelan Accent

Since the massive arrival of Venezuelans to the city began, the practice of “hot ball” has become widespread.

A gravelly voice with a coastal accent announced that the Venezuelan anthem was going to be played on the Luis Alberto Villegas baseball diamond in Medellín.

At that moment, excited shouts and applause were heard in the stands, which were filled with a large number of Venezuelan citizens. Most of them were parents, who were accompanying their children at the sports clinic that was held on Friday in the city at the initiative of the Project Baseball Foundation.
