A huge sigh of relief
For those of you who have not heard, Pepe Yniguez, one of our Spanish language broadcasters, had to return home from Milwaukee after a tumor was found in his wife Margarita’s brain. After several days of worrying on everyone’s part, she underwent surgery last night to remove the tumor and I’m really happy to pass along the news that everything went extremely well and that she’s recovering now.
Pepe called me a little while ago to make sure I gave everyone his most sincere thanks for all the calls, emails, well wishes, prayers, etc. that he has been receiving. He said that he could not put into words how much that has meant to him and his family through this tough time.
As I sit here in the press box at Shea, I’m truly breathing a huge sigh of relief. When you spend as much time with these people as we do in this traveling party, it’s hard to explain how much of a hit something like this has to the team. Pepe is one of the most sincere people involved with this organization and though I’ve only met Margarita one time, we’re all feeling much better today than we have been since Tuesday night.
