When it comes to baseball, David Ortiz is one of the authorized voices to speak about it. 24 hours before the debut duel between the Dominican Republic and Venezuela for the World Classic, ‘Big Papi’ sees the South American nation as a danger to the competition’s rivals.

In an interview on the field in Miami for El Extrabase, the former Boston Red Sox figure praised the Venezuelan team and assured that in addition to having a great roster, they are focused and that makes them a more difficult team. .

“Venezuela has a great team. Those boys who are there, who are mine, are dangerous because they are quiet and they can make a mess of you, ”she said.

Ortiz continued with his idea and highlighted the benefits of Venezuelan culture, which he compared with the Dominican one. “Venezuelan and Dominican culture are very similar. I have had Venezuelan friends, colleagues and coaches and they are admirable. They look like us, that’s why this match between the two teams will be very nice, in addition to the talent they both have”.

The slugger with more than 540 home runs in Major League Baseball was named along with reggaeton player Daddy Yankee as ambassador of the World Classic. He even sounds like a candidate to throw the opening pitch in the game of his native Dominican Republic vs. Venezuela.

These two countries are in Group D along with Puerto Rico, Israel and Nicaragua and will debut this Saturday, March 11, in one of the last matches of the day around 5:00 p.m. It should be noted that David Ortiz represented the Dominican Republic as a player in the first edition of the World Classic in 2006 and was a figure in a match against Venezuela in which he hit two home runs.
