Last Night, my Uncle Rudy whom I loved dearly lost his battle with cancer. This was his second round with this horrible disease. The first time was over 25 years ago he had Mandibular Cancer. He played baseball in the major league in Cuba. He played for Havana which at the time he played was 2nd only to No. America baseball. He was a pitcher and later was a little league coach, who coach, Canseco (Both of them), A. Rod, A. Fernandez and so many more. He love the Yankees and was a true fan. His house was always open to those who had less, Every family member who came from Cuba had a stop at his house, at Christmas he invited everyone who was alone and felt that no one should be alone at Christmas. He was a loving father but a strong father, he loved his family and we all loved him.
Tio Rudy you will be miss. Love you La Artista (The Actress his nickname to me.
