Rest in Peace Bobby Castillo

How sad that we have lost another Dodger.   Bobby (Babo) Castillo was a Dodger pitcher who taught Fernando how to throw the screwball.

I heard the news on Twitter from el senor Jaime Jarrin.  El Maestro Jaime said that Babo Castillo was the first of 35 baseball players signed by Mike Brito that reached Major league Baseball.

Here is Bobby with Mike Brito

I was remembering back in 2009 when the Dodgers used to host WIN (Women Initiative Network) Baseball clinics and Bobby Castillo was part of our instructors for that day.   He was in the Dodger bullpen and Lorena and I stood in line so that we could throw and he could catch us.  Well, he never got to us.  We told him and he said “I’ll make it up to you two”   Well, he never did.   Rest in peace “Babo”  Our deepest condolences to your family and friends.
